Client feedback


​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,
Bouygues
They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.
Ian Edwards,
Comet
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.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
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
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
​We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.
Katherine Cross,

Pension trustee training

Keeping knowledge and understanding up to date is a must for 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 covering 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 tPR's 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.
