Client feedback


When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.

PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
