Client feedback


They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
Ian Edwards,
Comet
When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
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,
Vector Aerospace
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
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.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group

GDPR compliance for pension schemes

Pension trustees need to be ready for new data protection regulations coming into force in May 2018.


The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) involves all sorts of new compliance requirements. As professional pension trustees, we found there are a lot more questions than answers from legal advisers and pension consultancies regarding GDPR.

To simplify things, PSIT has designed a low cost solution for GDPR compliance by a pension scheme. Our Data Protection Policy template and checklist cover everything pension trustees need to comply on a pragmatic basis.

Split into sections - including subject access requests, lawful processing etc - this easy to use document uses generic policies together with highlighted sections where scheme specific details are needed and a simple to navigate list of actions clearly explaining what information is needed from administrators and other data processors.

GDPR policies

The Data Protection Policy template and checklist are available for a low fixed fee of £1,000 + VAT.

To obtain your copy, please contact James Double on 0845 313 0024 or via email.
