​I enjoy working with PSIT and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,
PSIT was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.

Trustee, Lansing Linde
When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
​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.
