Client feedback


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

​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,

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.
​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,

The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.

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.
