Client feedback


​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,

PSGS were overall more professional than others.

They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
Ian Edwards,
Comet
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,
Bouygues
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.
