Client feedback


​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.
Paul Rudd,
Express Newspapers
​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
​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.
Katherine Cross,
Tyser
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
PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,
Bouygues

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.
