“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it.”
“Appointing Kevin as KBC professional trustee was one of the best decisions the bank took. He complements the other two trustees and also appreciates the position of the employer too. The experience a professional trustee adds is invaluable and they can share their knowledge and market practice within the KBC plan. Kevin manages the budget in consultation with the bank, fully debriefs all parties and maintains a constant dialogue with myself (as HR Manager) and trustees. Since we have worked together for a number of years, Kevin also appreciates some of the limitations we face ie budgets, and always comes up with a proactive approach and solution. His input is particularly valued by the bank trustee who is an actuary in our pensions department in Belgium Head Office. ”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“We don't have any worries - PSGS are always there for us and plan ahead with advisers and agendas. ”
“Very broad, comprehensive trustee training course covering a wide range of topics. Excellent!”
