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 Cross,
Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.

PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
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
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
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.

Interim pension resources

Need another pair of hands to help with pensions management or a pension scheme project? You’ve come to the right place.

Interim pensions support can help in many ways, eg with:

  • staff shortages due to maternity leave, long or short-term sickness or staff leaving service, where an interim can help during the notice period of a new incumbent
  • strategic pension reviews – to help drive forward and execute pension strategy
  • peak workloads & pension projects – eg GMP equalisation, DC transfers, pension scheme consolidation or merger, M&A activity, pension buy ins & buy outs, pension scheme closures & winding up, international pensions
  • employee consultations during a proposed change to pension benefits or policy
  • harmonisation of pension arrangements - eg across different defined contribution (DC) providers or defined benefit (DB) pension schemes
  • trustee appointments – eg during complex projects such as scheme valuations & funding negotiations, investment strategy reviews or where there’s been a resignation
  • establishing a workplace DC governance committee framework
