“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“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.”
“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.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
Mark acts as a sole trustee and in arrangements as part of a wider trustee board.
Mark has been involved in independent pension trusteeship for many years, starting with Barclays Corporate Trustees in the early nineties. He originally joined them in 1980 in a pension administration role.
Mark moved to Royal Exchange Trust Company (a trustee subsidiary of GRE and Axa), then Capita Fiduciary. In each role, he led or supported the trustee relationship for schemes of differing sizes, sponsor types and situations. He has first hand experience of changes in regulation over that time, together with the corresponding increase in pension trustee responsibility and liabilities.
Mark joined us in 2009. Having been involved with over 100 different schemes to date, he is well placed to understand the different needs and dynamics of pension schemes and their sponsors, including the importance of a sound scheme governance structure.
Mark has extensive knowledge of the advisory market and is skilled at selecting the best set of advisers to ensure successful outcomes for a particular scheme.
