Client feedback


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
​Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.
Katherine Cross,
Tyser
We don't have any worries - PSGS are always there for us and plan ahead with advisers and agendas.
Stephen Allaker,

Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.
Mark Smith,
Partner at Taylor Wessing
I find Colin proactive rather than reactive. He is also supportive.

Role

Sophia is an experienced investment consultant and is now a professional pension trustee.

Background & experience

Sophia started her pensions career in 2006 training to be an actuary with Punter Southall. In 2008, she moved to P-Solve (now Schroders Solutions) to start working in investment, focusing on derivatives – liability driven investment (LDI) and structured equity.

Since then, Sophia has worked for Cardano and Barnett Waddingham in roles as a senior investment consultant within fiduciary and advisory governance models, LDI portfolio manager and LDI manager researcher.

Before joining PSGS in 2022, Sophia spent two years at Insight Asset Management as a client director, where she was responsible for relationships with large institutional investors.

Within her investment roles, Sophia had strong focus on responsible investment and ESG analysis, using this to assist trustees in determining their responsible investment beliefs and developing ways to reflect those beliefs in investment portfolios.

Sophia overcame her fear of open water swimming and achieved 5th place in her age group at the Windsor triathlon in 2022.

Qualifications: Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering (Cantab), Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries
