Client feedback


PSGS have provided sound and professional advice through a number of difficult pension decisions – would thoroughly recommend.
George Batho ,
HR Director, Linde Material Handling
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.
PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
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.

Gillian and Curtis provide an excellent service to the trustees. They are approachable and possess a huge amount of knowledge. Everything appears to work smoothly which I am sure is due to the immense amount of work they do in the background to ensure all paperwork is available and up to date.

KGPT trustees
Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received.

Role

Mark acts as a sole trustee and in arrangements as part of a wider trustee board.

Background & experience

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.
