“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 Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
“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. ”
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!
