“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. ”
“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. ”
“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.”
“Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.”
“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.”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
The requirement applies to all providers of contract-based workplace pension schemes, including group personal pensions (GPPs), group stakeholder pension schemes and group self invested personal pensions (group SIPPs).
The type of pensions governance committee you need depends on how large and complex the scheme you operate is.
These governance committees will act in the interests of pension members, assess the workplace pension scheme's value for money and, when needed, raise independent challenge to you, the scheme provider.
Independent Governance Committees (IGCs) must have a minimum of five members, including an independent chair.
Providers of smaller, less complex schemes may appoint an independent third party to act as a Governance Advisory Arrangement (GAA).
We can also provide professional secretarial services to pension scheme governance committees to ensure they are run efficiently, decisions are accurately recorded and actions are promptly followed up and managed.
