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.

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.

Very professional and engaged service.

​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.

I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further.

PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it

Role

Laura is a member of our specialist Pension Protection Fund (PPF) team.

Background & experience

Laura started her pensions career in 2007 with a law firm as a Pensions Paralegal before being seduced by the variety of work and experience trusteeships can offer and joining us in 2014.

Laura is an experienced project manager, routinely managing scheme governance, data and benefit reviews, investment reviews and legal reviews. She has helped with the successful transfer of eight schemes into the Financial Assistance Scheme, nine into the PPF and one PPF plus buy-out. She also provides secretarial support to ongoing schemes.

Laura is certainly adventurous. She has hang glided in New Zealand and snorkelled in the Great Barrier Reef and around the Galapagos Islands. She also took part in a night time half marathon to raise money for Cancer Research.
