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

They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
Ian Edwards,
Comet
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,

Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,

They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

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.
