“The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.”
“Expertise - independent - takes the strain off.”
“We have realised the benefit of having and independent trustee. Claire sees what general practice is like, so is able to guide us.”
“We chose PSGS because of the experience of the team and the feel of the relationship seemed the right fit.”
“Keen to assist and helpful.”
“We now have a very collaborative approach between trustees and employer.”
If stockpiling toilet paper, PPE, viability of deficit reduction contributions (DRCs), remote working and lockdowns weren’t enough, I’ve been thinking about all the additional challenges pension trustees and scheme secretaries have had to contend with over the past few months:
The Pensions Regulator ended the year with the introduction of the ‘pledge’ campaign to combat pension scams encouraging trustees, providers and administrators to sign up with best practice. This seems to have hit exactly the right note and I’m pleased this is clearly going to keep us busy over the months to come.
It’s been a difficult year for many and I’m sure we will all be happy to see the back of it, but on behalf of everyone at PSGS, we hope you have a safe, relaxing festive season and we look forward to working with – and hopefully seeing – you in 2021!
Oh and I can't forget the virtual meeting catch phrase of 2020 has to be ”You’re on mute!”.
