Client feedback


I learnt more than I expected to at the trustee training course. A good introduction to the trustee role.
Rob Hartley,

We now have a very collaborative approach between trustees and employer.
Peter Millard,
Company Secretary, TRL Limited
In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
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
The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.

​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.

Role

Julie acts as secretary to the trustees for several clients and co-ordinates day-to-day activities for a variety of appointments.

Background & experience

Julie began her career in 1985 in pension scheme administration working for British Shipbuilders in-house pensions department. She moved to Aon, where she had a senior role with full financial and operational responsibility for an administration team.

Julie joined Punter Southall Group in 1999 and subsequently moved to us in 2006. Her pension administration skills are highly regarded and she used these to develop our Internal Controls Review services.

In addition to her scheme secretary role, Julie also supports our professional trustees. She ensures governance and compliance requirements are met, and was involved in the implementation of our internet based scheme document management and trustee management tools.

Julie’s personal achievements often seem to involve survival - be that going on high, scary rides in Florida despite her fear of heights, or making it through the surprise birthday meal arranged by the PSGS team!

Qualifications: PMI Certificate of Trusteeship.
