Client feedback


PSGS were overall more professional than others.
Paul Staniland,
Kier
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
​We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian and Kerry react to us and work with us is brilliant. We are very happy.
Katherine Breading,
Tyser
PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.
Stuart Barker ,
Independent Occupational Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
