“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. ”
“The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“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.”
“As a pensions novice, I felt that the trustee training course gave me a good grounding.”
Many employers choose to set up a pensions management committee to oversee their workplace pension scheme (such as a group personal pension) and help pension members achieve a good outcome from the pension plan. The Pensions Regulator recognises that one good way to make sure your pensions governance committee is effective is to use the knowledge and experience of pension trustees.
An easy way to access this expertise is to work with a professional independent trustee from PSGS.
Our workplace pension scheme services are designed to make sure your pensions committee is focused and effective, that committee members are well trained and that, together, they have the skills and knowledge needed to properly manage your pension scheme for the benefit of members.
Our services include:
As well as being completely independent, balancing the needs of employers and pension scheme members is in our DNA - it is part of our day job. Our professional pension secretaries provide guidance and support with all pension management committee operations, from agenda setting and minute taking to establishing and monitoring pension scheme risks. Our in-depth understanding of pensions regulation means you and your pension governance committee don’t need to keep turning to a third party adviser for assistance.
