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.

Many organisations and people provide the services that clients need. In my opinion, the differentiator is in the way those services are provided and to that extent, Kathy embodies the qualities that I have come to value from PSITL. Kathy is organised but not fussy; diligent but not dogmatic; persistent without being pushy and compliant in a pragmatic way. Whilst she takes ownership and drives issues forward, Kathy is a team player who uses her and her colleagues experience to provide services to her trustee client whilst working closely with those like me representing the sponsoring employer. She works collaboratively with advisers but constructively challenges the scope of services, fees and service standards whenever necessary and makes sure that member needs are always taken into account. I enjoy working with her and trust that she will deliver what is required by the trustee and the members they represent in a manner satisfactory to the sponsoring employer.

Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary
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.

Pension scheme governance

Effective governance is a necessity for any well-run trust or contract based pension scheme. It's an area The Pensions Regulator looks at closely.


It can be difficult to keep up to date with the multitude of legislative requirements and regulatory guidance associated with running your company pension scheme - let alone to be sure you are fully compliant.

Whether you have a defined benefit (DB) or defined contribution (DC) pension plan, our extensive experience of pensions management and scheme governance means we can help you:

  • identify all the pension governance requirements you need to meet
  • introduce or improve practical measures to meet those pension governance requirements
  • create a framework for monitoring and managing pension scheme governance going forward

Our pension governance services are available to all pension trustees and employers, whether or not we are appointed as independent trustee to your pension scheme or pension secretary to your scheme trustees.

PSGS’s pensions governance services include:

Specific specialist PSGS services to support the delivery of your pension scheme governance strategy include:
