Client feedback


I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further.

In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.

In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

​Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.

Pensions management

Pressure on budgets means fewer employers now have sufficient expertise or resource to deal with complex, time-consuming pension issues in-house.


Many turn to their actuarial or pensions advisers to fill the gaps and, although seeking their expert advice is helpful on certain strategic pension scheme issues, it can be an expensive route to take for day-to-day pension scheme management and tasks such as pensions project management and implementation.

As an alternative, the PSGS team of pension experts can fill the gaps in your pensions management team on a permanent, ad-hoc or interim basis, providing the expertise you need in a cost effective way. By sharing our in-depth experience across all aspects of pensions and scheme management, we can help you successfully deal with any pension scheme issue, such as:

  • co-ordinating and implementing a new pensions strategy
  • helping your pension trustees manage pension scheme governance and compliance
  • reviewing the effectiveness of your workplace pension auto-enrolment arrangements
  • launching a defined contribution pension scheme
  • assessing trustee board effectiveness
  • managing and communicating pension scheme changes
  • relieving pressure during spikes of work or when you have insufficient resource, perhaps due to maternity, sickness or holiday leave
