They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

PSGS were overall more professional than others.

The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.

These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. PSGS is geared to delivering that.
Ray Pygott,
Partner at KPMG LLP
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.

I learnt more than I expected to at the trustee training course. A good introduction to the trustee role.

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.
