Client feedback


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
We now have a very collaborative approach between trustees and employer.
Peter Millard,
Company Secretary, TRL Limited
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.
Katherine Dandy,
Partner at Sackers & Partners
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick

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 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.
