Client feedback


Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,

PSGS were overall more professional than others.
Paul Staniland,

The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,
The Altro Pension and Life Scheme
As a pensions novice, I felt that the trustee training course gave me a good grounding.
Will Court
I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.
Dave Strain,

​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.

Escrow agent

Funds sometimes need to be set aside (in ‘escrow’) under the control of more than one party to be used in specific circumstances.

In the pensions context, the account would hold monies paid by the pension scheme sponsor. Funds are protected and would only be released to either the pension scheme or the employer when certain pre-agreed trigger points are reached. Escrow accounts are often used at the time of a corporate acquisition or disposal to help manage risk and deliver certainty and security.

We act as an independent third party managing both pension and non-pension escrow accounts.

Why use a third party to manage an escrow account?

In addition to handling all fiduciary duties and managing the receipt, investment and payment of funds, an added advantage of an escrow account managed by a third party is that the funds will be preserved in the event of an insolvency.
