Client feedback


PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.

Trustee, Lansing Linde
​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.

​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,

The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters.

So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.

Role

James is a professional pension trustee. He is a PSGS board member and is responsible for our trustee services.

Background & experience

James started his career in 1997 with Bacon & Woodrow in personal pension mis-selling loss calculation. With Hewitt Associates he held team leader and client relationship management roles. His responsibilities included scheme secretarial, outsourced pension management and administration client management for defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) schemes. His largest client had over 5,000 members.

In 2007, James moved into trusteeship when he joined Aspen plc (now Capita Fiduciary). His experience and technical expertise mean he understands the risks faced by schemes of different sizes and complexities, and how to manage them effectively.

James presents trustee training on topics such as investments, actuarial valuations, 21st century trusteeship and scheme governance.

James is a keen runner and raised over £3,500 for the Royal Marsden by completing the London Marathon. He is also pleased to have got a single figure golf handicap back after a number of years not playing.
