“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“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. ”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“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.”
