“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“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. ”
“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.”
“Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.”
“Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.”

We are pleased to announce that Punter Southall Group has agreed to purchase the Reading based HR Trustees from Xafinity plc. HR Trustees will form part of PS Independent Trustees (PSIT), Punter Southall Group’s trustee company, and will be completely independent of the new Xafinity Punter Southall business.
The purchase enables us to expand the depth and breadth of PSIT’s professional trustee, scheme secretarial and pensions governance offerings. The HR Trustees team members are expected to transfer in early January 2018, bringing the total PSIT team to nearly 40 people.
The acquisition means PSIT will become the UK’s second largest professional trustee company by turnover and will be truly independent of any pension scheme advisers. The combined business will look after well over 200 clients with total assets of over £30bn and covering over 300,000 scheme members.
We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues from HR Trustees. Combining the two businesses is truly exciting and will enable us to make further investment in both our delivery and range of client services.
