“Very professional and engaged service.”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
Kirsty co-ordinates all day-to-day activities for a range of trustee secretary appointments. She also provides support to our team of independent trustees.
