Client feedback


​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,
RTUK
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
Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.
Stuart Barker ,
Independent Occupational Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.

The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.

Background & experience

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.
