Client feedback


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.
Duncan Buchanan,
Partner at Hogan Lovells
They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

​We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.

When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
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.
