“The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.”
“Excellent communication - the trustee training course facilitators were clearly knowledgeable and very experienced in their field and able to convey concept and information in a way I was able to understand. ”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
“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.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
