Client feedback


The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.
Head of Trustee Services
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.
Dave Strain,

The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters.

PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it

Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.

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.
