“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. ”
“The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.”
“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.”
“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.”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“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.”
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.

She supported the pensions manager and trustee board with the day-to-day running of the scheme. Her duties included organising trustee training, maintaining internal processes, liaising with the HR team during sales and acquisitions and setting up a new GPP. She joined us in 2011.
