Client feedback


Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
​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.
Katherine Cross,
Tyser
Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.
Jonathan Williams ,

I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further.

​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,
RTUK
I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.

Role

Ian acts as professional trustee to both defined benefit and defined contribution clients.

Background & experience

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!

Qualifications: Fellow of the Pensions Management Institute (FPMI).
