Client feedback


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
Excellent, very strong relationship. Good understanding of our needs. We can absolutely rely on PSGS.
David Onion ,

Colin has provided invaluable support to me in my role as Chair Trustee.
Kathy, may l take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance. There were many times l thought l was losing my mind during my efforts with Aviva. You were a pillar of support for me and you saw my case through to the very end. I cannot thank you enough but thank you again. It is through people like you who strive for professional fairness as well as thoroughness, HCA has such a good reputation.
Ethel Chimutwe,
HCA International Ltd Staff Retirement Benefits Scheme
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.
Stuart Barker,
Internal Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
The service runs very smoothly, might have expected a few more difficulties transitioning to a professional trustee.

Governance & compliance: it’s all about proportionality

Topic:

Legal & governance

Date published:

Friday, 28 November 2014

The Pensions Regulator is keen on proportionality. We are too, but we know many people feel the burden of complying with pension scheme regulations makes applying proportionality impossible.

In this article, Simon Riviere looks at what proportionality means in practice, including examples around employer covenants, efficiency and defined contribution (DC) pension scheme governance.
