Client feedback


The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.

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.
