“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties. ”
“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.”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“Ann and her team are very knowledgeable and proactive, liaise well with our other advisers and provide the Trustees with an invaluable secretarial service.”
Our sole trustee schemes are defined benefit (DB), defined contribution (DC) or hybrid and many face common complexities and challenges, for example:
Taking away the governance, day-to-day operations and cost of a full pension trustee board and replacing it with a skilled, dedicated professional sole trustee can make it a lot easier and efficient for everyone. An experienced sole trustee establishes the right focus and governance, provides wide market knowledge to draw on and ensures an effective working relationship with the pension scheme sponsor.
We have a knowledge sharing, team based approach that ensures at least two named individuals will have a detailed knowledge of your pension scheme. It means someone will always available to respond to queries, manage the advisers and progress trustee business - you are never dependent on one person.
