Client feedback


Alex is the first professional trustee we have had and has revolutionised the way they look at things - helped above and beyond.
Angela Clayton,
Accent Group
A major problem with the pension fund needed skilled, constructive help - which was given!
Very happy with PSGS as an organisation and that opinion is derived from the performance of those that represent them.
Sean Hoyle,
Wightlink
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
Brilliant to work with - inspiring confidence that risks are anticipated and well-managed, and adding huge value by sharing expertise and best practice.
Mark Berry,
RM
So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper

Group life assurance schemes

Death in service benefit decisions can be complicated and personally difficult to make. Appointing PSGS as independent trustee and using our group life master trust relieves that burden and responsibility.


Many employers use a life cover only trust to provide death in service benefits to employees, particularly those who are not members of a trust-based pension scheme.

Case study

Exercising discretion over who should receive the benefit from a group life assurance trust can be fraught with pitfalls. Take a look at the case study in our group life mastertrust flyer to see how Pensions Ombudsman rulings on death complaint cases show this can be a minefield.

Are you sure your group life trust's claims and discretion processes are effective and efficient, with:

  • the correct steps being taken at the correct time?
  • the right questions being asked of the right people?
  • all relevant information collected swiftly and accurately?
  • sensitive liaison with the individuals’ relatives?
  • claims administration and communications handled promptly and professionally?
PSGS life assurance master trust

Our master trust solution helps employers navigate a safe and cost effective path through the death in service benefit claims and discretions process. The benefits of using PSGS's group life master trust include:

  • peace of mind that difficult death in service benefit decisions are being handled by an experienced, independent professional
  • certainty your claims management process follows best practice guidelines
  • confidence that rational and non-conflicted decisions are being made
  • assurance your HR team are not weighed down with time-consuming administrative tasks
