Client feedback


So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees.
Duncan Buchanan,
Partner at Hogan Lovells
Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
We now have a very collaborative approach between trustees and employer.
Peter Millard,
Company Secretary, TRL Limited
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
