In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
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 was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

De-risking on the agenda for 91% of pension schemes - survey results

Our joint PSIT and Gowling WLG survey looked at where defined benefit (DB) pension schemes of all shapes and sizes are at on their de-risking journeys. The results challenged some preconceptions on scheme sponsor funding and what pension de-risking actually looks like.

The three key themes emerging from the survey are:

  • engagement between pension trustees and scheme sponsors to develop a strategy is vital for successful de-risking
  • de-risking is no longer just about insurance - pension liability management exercises and investment strategies are central to a new joined up approach to de-risking
  • funding from the pension scheme sponsor is often not the main impediment to de-risking

Download the full pension de-risking survey results to find out how the best options for reducing pension schemes are managing risk and what they plan to do in the future.
