Client feedback


The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
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.
Jonathan Williams ,
Bangor University
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

They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

Role

James co-ordinates all day-to-day activities for a range of scheme secretarial and independent trustee appointments.

Background & experience

After a successful actuarial internship at Punter Southall Limited, James joined their actuarial consultancy team in 2010. He joined us in 2016.

James has particular experience in scheme funding, actuarial factor reviews and setting transfer value bases. He is involved in member communications, providing pension scheme investment advice and delivering trustee secretary services to clients.

In 2011, James was seconded to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) where he was involved in completing the yearly actuarial valuation for the organisation. He is also experienced in Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) cases.

James likes to keep active - he was voted Players’ Player of the Season for his football team and has achieved the Sports Diver Scuba Diving qualification. If that isn’t enough, he has climbed Mount Snowdon and is on track to visit all seven continents (two to go!).
