Client feedback


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.
Ray Pygott,
Partner at KPMG LLP
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 Cairns,

The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

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.
