Client feedback


It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.
Mark Smith,
Partner at Taylor Wessing
Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.
Stuart Barker ,
Independent Occupational Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
​Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.
Katherine Cross,
Tyser
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

In 2006, Kirsty moved into a pensions specialist role at QinetiQ, a public private partnership outsourced from the civil service. She supported the pensions manager and trustee board with the day-to-day running of the scheme.
