“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
“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.”
“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.”
“The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters. ”
“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
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.

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.
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.
