Client feedback

Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSIT as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,
​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.
Katherine Breading,
​Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.
Clare Cairns,
Campden BRI Group
They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.
