Client feedback


​We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian and Kerry react to us and work with us is brilliant. We are very happy.
Katherine Breading,
Tyser
They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.
Sally-Anne Borrill,
T-Systems
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
I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further.
Claire Silvester,

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
In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS' pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.

CFO at Survitec Group

Why PSGS?

We offer clients high quality service, innovative thinking and true pension trustee and pension secretary expertise, delivered with a personal approach and a clear commitment to professional standards.


PSGS’ service is tailored to meet the needs of each individual client, and the benefits of working with us include:

  • Our approach to relationship management - each PSGS client has a dedicated scheme manager with a named back up team supporting them. Appointments are personal and we believe it is your choice over who your independent trustee or pension secretary should be, not ours.
  • Our technology - we make technology work harder to help improve pension scheme management for our clients, making our processes and service more efficient and transparent. We use SharePoint to help us ensure we remain compliant with all statutory deadlines.
  • Our commitment to cost certainty - we make no additional charges for insurance, secretarial time or our in-house technical support. We plan and budget for annual costs on a clearly defined fixed or budgeted cost basis.
  • Our ability to spot key issues and act decisively on them – we recognise likely problems in advance and ensure that pension trustees, sponsoring employers and advisers deal with them promptly, efficiently, properly and pragmatically.
  • Our commitment to industry standards - PSGS led the way in calling for a code of conduct for professional trustees to provide clear standards for advice and behaviour that clients should expect to receive from a paid professional, which was subsequently developed by The Association of Corporate Trustees and the Independent Pension Trustee Group .

What do our clients think?

“I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best.” - Julian Morton, Camellia plc
