Client feedback


So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
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.
Duncan Buchanan,
Partner at Hogan Lovells
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,
The Altro Pension and Life Scheme
In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
Ann and her team are very knowledgeable and proactive, liaise well with our other advisers and provide the Trustees with an invaluable secretarial service.
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustees, Comet

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).
