“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.”
“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.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“Very professional and engaged service.”
“The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.”
