PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.
Sally-Anne Borrill,

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
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees.
Duncan Buchanan,
Partner at Hogan Lovells
​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.
Paul Rudd,

Pension scheme mediation

Conflicts of interest in pension scheme funding discussions and pension negotiations during corporate merger and acquisition activity are often complex and can sometimes be contentious.

To ease negotiations and avoid reaching a situation of impasse, consider appointing an independent trustee to your pension scheme on an interim basis right at the start of the process.

If your pension scheme negotiations have started but you’ve reached a position of stalemate or frayed relationships, professional pension mediation may be the answer.

The PSGS senior independent pension trustee team includes accredited Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution mediators. This means we can act as a neutral third party to work with all those involved to negotiate a settlement or agreement in complex pension negotiations and situations of conflict. As mediator, we ensure these situations are handled effectively and good outcomes are achieved.

Our mediation skills are also reflected in how we approach our role as professional trustee – we collaborate rather than dictate. Our clients tell us they find this beneficial.

If you are about to start pension funding discussions, or are finding resolution of a pension scheme issue difficult to achieve, find out more about how our pensions mediators can help you by contacting us.
