Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.

The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.
Head of Trustee Services
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.
​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.

Many organisations and people provide the services that clients need. In my opinion, the differentiator is in the way those services are provided and to that extent, Kathy embodies the qualities that I have come to value from PSITL. Kathy is organised but not fussy; diligent but not dogmatic; persistent without being pushy and compliant in a pragmatic way. Whilst she takes ownership and drives issues forward, Kathy is a team player who uses her and her colleagues experience to provide services to her trustee client whilst working closely with those like me representing the sponsoring employer. She works collaboratively with advisers but constructively challenges the scope of services, fees and service standards whenever necessary and makes sure that member needs are always taken into account. I enjoy working with her and trust that she will deliver what is required by the trustee and the members they represent in a manner satisfactory to the sponsoring employer.

Freda came back to pensions in 2014, continuing her career with us. She is experienced in managing pension schemes through PPF assessment and has also worked on a PPF plus buyout case. She helps the team maintain compliance with regulatory and internal control procedures such as AAF.

Freda has grown and gained valuable experience within the industry and is developing her own portfolio of cases.
