“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
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.
