“Thanks for all your help!”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“PSGS have provided sound and professional advice through a number of difficult pension decisions – would thoroughly recommend.”
“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.”
“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. ”
