Client feedback


​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.

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
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.
Katherine Dandy,
Partner at Sackers & Partners
Ann and her team are very knowledgeable and proactive, liaise well with our other advisers and provide the Trustees with an invaluable secretarial service.
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustees, Comet
​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,

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.

PS Independent Trustees and HR Trustees rebrand as Punter Southall Governance Services

Topic:

PSGS news

Date published:

Monday, 5 November 2018

Following the merger of PS Independent Trustees (PSIT) and HR Trustees (HRTL) in January, the business has today rebranded as Punter Southall Governance Services (PSGS).

Wayne Phelan, PSGS’s Managing Director, commented:

“Our new name reflects two things. First is the true depth of services our business offers - trusteeship and outsourced services (such as scheme secretarial and pensions management) are of equal importance to us and this wasn’t reflected appropriately in either of the PSIT or HRTL names.

Secondly, we are now able to align ourselves much more closely with the Punter Southall Group and our sister business within PSG. This followed the sale of the Punter Southall actuarial, administration and investment consulting businesses to Xafinity plc at the start of the year.”

The HR Trustees name will continue to be used by the specialist Pension Protection Fund (PPF) team within PSGS in their work with the PPF.
