Client feedback


Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.
Stuart Barker ,
Independent Occupational Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
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.
Katherine Dandy,
Partner at Sackers & Partners
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
It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.
Mark Smith,
Partner at Taylor Wessing
​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.
Paul Rudd,
Express Newspapers
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

Pension trustee training

Keeping knowledge and understanding up to date is a must for the 21st century trustees to meet Pensions Regulator requirements.

We are strong believers in the importance of effective, targeted training to improve pension trustee knowledge and understanding (TKU) and regularly run courses that cover real life examples and topical pension issues as well as the Pensions Regulator’s (tPR) scope guidance.

Our courses include:

  • Trustee knowledge & understanding for new pension trustees
  • core knowledge refresher sessions for more experienced pension trustees
  • training for the 21st century trustee - covering governance, strategic thinking & risk management and effective board dynamics
  • bespoke training for individual trustee boards - for example, ahead of an investment strategy review or pension scheme valuation

All of our training courses for pension trustees are interactive, with plenty of practical examples and opportunities for discussion and questions. Click here to see our latest course dates.

Trustee training tools

Our trustee training needs analysis highlights where knowledge gaps exist and additional training is required. Our pension trustee effectiveness self-assessment questionnaire helps you assess the structure and function of your trustee board, how well your trustee meetings work and the strength of your pension scheme governance arrangements.

From these we can build a specific trustee training plan or conduct a more in-depth trustee board effectiveness review to more fully meet 21st century trusteeship requirements.

You can learn more about or register for one of our trustee training course here. If you’d like to find out more about our trustee training tools or bespoke course, please contact us.
