“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees. ”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. PSGS is geared to delivering that.”
Ian acts as professional trustee to both defined benefit and defined contribution clients.
Having started in 1963 as an actuarial student with Commercial Union (now Aviva), Ian moved into consultancy and held senior roles with Sedgwick Noble Lowndes and Mercer before joining us in 2009. He has been responsible for the administration and management of pension schemes ranging from those with under 100 members to those operated by FTSE 250 companies.
Ian’s experience includes consulting with employers on all aspects of benefits strategy, but his principal focus was on regular support to pension trustees. He advises trustee boards, enabling them to expand their knowledge and build the confidence needed to achieve a successful outcome to funding negotiations with scheme sponsors.
Ian is a past President of the PMI and current volunteer adviser with TPAS, the Pensions Advisory Service. After more than 50 years in pensions, he still loves it!
Ian stands out amongst the PSGS team - he’s the only one of us to have made a speech in the House of Lords!
