Client feedback

Back in the day there was a large trustee board, with several independents (from the financial world) and the ex-Chairman of the company was offered the role as Chair of Trustees as a sweetener when he stepped down. Unionised company then divided - broad range of active members. They needed some expertise, consistency and leadership during this time. Wanted a serious/professional to lead and guide the trustees.

​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.

Consideration of social risks & opportunities call for evidence response


Hot topic

Date published:

Thursday, 17 June 2021

When responding to The Pensions Regulator’s single code of governance consultation, we noted the clear (and positive) intent to crystalise ESG and climate change considerations on trustees. However, on the face of it, the new requirements seem to weight things in the direction of the E. We think this could be rebalanced easily to make it clearer to pension trustees that E, S and G are all interrelated and carry equal importance.

PSGS' response to the DWP's ‘Consideration of social risks & opportunities call for evidence’ looks at the S in more detail, including:

  1. Trustees’ legal duties
  2. Social factors and financial materiality
  3. How trustees can take social factors into account
  4. Social factors as opportunities
