Very happy with PSGS as an organisation and that opinion is derived from the performance of those that represent them.

Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received.

We chose PSGS because of the experience of the team and the feel of the relationship seemed the right fit.
Paul Staniland,
Chair of Governance Committee, Kier Group Pension Trustees
Appointing Kevin as KBC professional trustee was one of the best decisions the bank took. He complements the other two trustees and also appreciates the position of the employer too. The experience a professional trustee adds is invaluable and they can share their knowledge and market practice within the KBC plan. Kevin manages the budget in consultation with the bank, fully debriefs all parties and maintains a constant dialogue with myself (as HR Manager) and trustees. Since we have worked together for a number of years, Kevin also appreciates some of the limitations we face ie budgets, and always comes up with a proactive approach and solution. His input is particularly valued by the bank trustee who is an actuary in our pensions department in Belgium Head Office.
