Client feedback


Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner!
Stuart Atkins,
Raleigh UK Ltd
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.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
​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.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
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
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,
Royal Yachting Association
It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.
Mark Smith,
Partner at Taylor Wessing

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.
