Client feedback


I learnt more than I expected to at the trustee training course. A good introduction to the trustee role.
Rob Hartley,
RSPCA
We have a good partnership the team really understand what we need and our knowledge eg budgets - "we don't have a referee" - very helpful. Challenge advisers but with a practical objective. Thanks to PSGS, GMP equalisation has been just a process.
Stephen Allaker ,
Bristol Myers-Squibb
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
Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.
Jonathan Williams ,

So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
Excellent, very strong relationship. Good understanding of our needs. We can absolutely rely on PSGS.
