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.

When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.

Colin provides expert trusteeship. He guides former employees not familiar with legal constraints and restrictions - he is aware of them and helps solve problems - very happy.
We have realised the benefit of having and independent trustee. Claire sees what general practice is like, so is able to guide us.

Healthcare trust services

Like trust-based pension schemes, healthcare trusts require effective governance and management. The trustees play a critical role.

Increasingly, large employers are moving from private medical insurance to providing employee healthcare benefits via a medical trust. The benefits of this approach can include:

  • balancing exposure to cost and risk
  • achieving cost savings
  • tailored benefit limits and exclusions
  • more flexible claims management
  • smoother funding with drip fed contributions
  • greater versatility in care approaches
Effective management of healthcare trust ‘pain points’

Managing employee healthcare claims can be complicated with queries and complaints commonplace. Appointing an independent trustee to manage your healthcare benefit trust helps distance your HR team from these tense, difficult and potentially time consuming situations.

Other reasons to appoint an expert independent trustee to your employee medical benefits trust include:

  • enabling the employer to make cleaner decisions on other employee issues
  • benefitting from our detailed understanding of practical risk management and scheme funding
  • strengthening governance through our expertise & best practice knowledge
  • using our investment expertise to help maximise value of surplus
  • ensuring effective communication with beneficiaries at what can be a difficult time
  • more efficient claims management driven by greater experience
  • achieving better value and better quality services from others providing services to your employee healthcare trust
