Client feedback


PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.
Dave Strain,
Royal Yachting Association
Gillian goes above and beyond, she is very responsive to the whole team and delivers outstanding work.
Wendy Stansfield,

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

Have you taken the pledge?

The Pensions Regulator has launched a new campaign calling on trustees, providers and administrators to do everything they can to protect scheme members from scammers. Pension scammers wreck lives and people can lose their entire life savings, but you can help.

What is the pledge and why should I do it?

When you pledge, you are committing to the following principles:

  • regularly warn members of the risk of scams
  • encourage those requesting cash drawdown to call The Pensions Advisory Service for free, impartial guidance
  • learn the warning signs of a scam and best practice for transfers by taking the new Trustee Toolkit module
  • take appropriate due diligence measures and document pension transfer procedures
  • clearly communicate concerns to members if high-risk transfers must be made
  • report concerns about a scam to the authorities and communicate this with the member.

Making the pledge will show your members and the pension industry that you are determined to tackle scams. Once you have pledged, you should take action to implement these principles and then self-certify that you're fully following them.

We’re all too aware that this is a very serious issue, and are looking to make the pledge to combat pension scams, and so can you.
