“The trustee training course covered a wide variety of subjects which gives a good basis for future discussion and decision making during trustee meetings.”
“The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
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!
