Client feedback


​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.
Katherine Dandy,
Partner at Sackers & Partners
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.

Thanks for all your help!
As a pensions novice, I felt that the trustee training course gave me a good grounding.

These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. PSGS is geared to delivering that.

Role

Wayne is a hugely experienced professional trustee, sole trustee and trustee board chair.

Background & experience

Wayne started his pensions career in 1990 with Prudential in the specialist area of Small Self Administered Schemes working on direct pension scheme investment. He continued in this role with Alexander Clay & Partners, working with larger occupational pension schemes. He also undertook secretary to the trustees, pensions manager and consultant roles on international clients.

In 2001, Wayne moved back to concentrate on acting solely as a professional pension trustee. Before joining us in 2005, he was a director of another trustee business where he was appointed by The Pensions Regulator to the failed MG Rover pension arrangements.

Wayne leads our research into de-risking and delegated investment management propositions. He has worked on many high profile trustee appointments, been involved in several industry initiatives and is a regular speaker at industry events. He is a winner of Engaged Investor’s Independent Trustee of the Year award.

Outside of work, Wayne loves motorised vehicles - be they cars, bikes or boats!

Areas of specialism

  • funding discussions & negotiation of contingent assets
  • trustee effectiveness
  • investment strategy
  • multi-scheme investment committees
