Client feedback


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.

PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.

They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

PSGS were overall more professional than others.

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.
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.

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 specialises in schemes requiring wind up and legacy defined benefit (DB) arrangements. She has experience with complex investment strategy reviews and legal issues connected to members entitlements and scheme documentation.

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.

Qualifications: LLB Hons Law Degree, Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
