Client feedback


​Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.
Katherine Breading,
Tyser
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.
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,
The Altro Pension and Life 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.

​Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.
Clare Cairns,
Campden BRI Group
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.

Pension adviser benchmarking

Are you confident you are receiving the best value from your current pension scheme advisers?


Striking the right balance between achieving good pension scheme governance and containing pension costs by ensuring pension advisers are delivering value for money is just one of the many demands faced by pension trustees today.

A benchmarking review is a quick and cost effective way to compare the service pension trustees are receiving and fees they are paying against market practice, without the need to carry out a full pension adviser review.

Our independent pension advisor benchmarking service

Our pension benchmarking reviews provide clear, objective information to enable your pension trustees to decide whether they are receiving a value service. To maximise the benefit you receive, we share our:

  • professional insight of working as independent pension trustee and trustee secretary for similar pension schemes
  • practical,'day job' understanding of how specific pension advisers work with pension trustees and pension scheme sponsors
  • information from our in-depth database of pension scheme actuaries, pension administrators, pension lawyers, investment consultants and other pension advisory firms - covering their staff, clients, systems, services and fees
  • expertise in performing pension advisor benchmarking and full market review exercises for pension trustees

The results of this fixed fee benchmarking service will enable you to decide whether to maintain the status quo with your current pension adviser, make improvements to their service or proceed to a full market review to find a new pension scheme adviser.
