“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
“Excellent communication - the trustee training course facilitators were clearly knowledgeable and very experienced in their field and able to convey concept and information in a way I was able to understand. ”
“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
“Gillian and Curtis provide an excellent service to the trustees. They are approachable and possess a huge amount of knowledge. Everything appears to work smoothly which I am sure is due to the immense amount of work they do in the background to ensure all paperwork is available and up to date.”
“Many organisations and people provide the services that clients need. In my opinion, the differentiator is in the way those services are provided and to that extent, Kathy embodies the qualities that I have come to value from PSITL. Kathy is organised but not fussy; diligent but not dogmatic; persistent without being pushy and compliant in a pragmatic way. Whilst she takes ownership and drives issues forward, Kathy is a team player who uses her and her colleagues experience to provide services to her trustee client whilst working closely with those like me representing the sponsoring employer. She works collaboratively with advisers but constructively challenges the scope of services, fees and service standards whenever necessary and makes sure that member needs are always taken into account. I enjoy working with her and trust that she will deliver what is required by the trustee and the members they represent in a manner satisfactory to the sponsoring employer. ”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”

On a gloriously sunny but cold day, PSGS’ Simon Lewis completed a charity fundraiser half marathon on Sunday 3 April smashing through the fundraising target and raised £775 for the charity Different Strokes – to support Kate Barette and others like her who live and work with the effects of stroke at an early age.
Simon wanted to undertake a new challenge this year for a good cause. He trained hard, posting regular progress updates on his Just Giving page and managed to come under 2 hours without stopping once!
Here’s what Simon had to say after the half marathon: “Thanks so much for your support and encouragement! I’m knackered but happy and had an enjoyable Reading half marathon (although my legs may disagree).”
Well done to Simon Riviere who also completed the half marathon on Sunday.
