Client feedback


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.
Stuart Barker,
Internal Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
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
Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary
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
Ann and her team are very knowledgeable and proactive, liaise well with our other advisers and provide the Trustees with an invaluable secretarial service.
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustees, Comet
​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.

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.
