Client feedback


They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
Ian Edwards,
Comet
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
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
PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
PSGS were overall more professional than others.

​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.

Role

Jill has taken part in various charity fundraising events including half and full marathon Moonwalks for breast cancer charities. She spent several years in amateur dramatics, chairing her local group, but now enjoys watching from the audience rather than the wings.
