Client feedback


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

The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.
Head of Trustee Services
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 trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,
The Altro Pension and Life Scheme
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
PSGS were overall more professional than others.
