PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it.

Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
​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.

The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters.

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.

Gillian goes above and beyond, she is very responsive to the whole team and delivers outstanding work.

The trustee training course covered a wide variety of subjects which gives a good basis for future discussion and decision making during trustee meetings.
