Mark Smith,
Partner at Taylor Wessing
​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,

PSIT offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,

The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.

Role

Julie is a Scheme Manager within PSIT Secretarial Services. She acts as secretary to the trustees for several clients and co-ordinates all day-to-day activities for a large variety of appointments.

Background & experience

Julie began her career in pension scheme administration working for British Shipbuilders in-house pensions department. She moved to Aon, where she had a senior role encompassing full financial and operational responsibility for an administration team.

Julie joined Punter Southall Group and subsequently moved to the PSIT team. Her pension scheme administration skills are highly regarded and she used these to develop PSIT’s Internal Controls Review services.

In addition to her scheme secretary role, Julie also supports a number of our professional trustees. She ensures governance and compliance requirements are met, and was involved in the implementation of our internet based scheme document management and trustee management tools.

Julie’s personal achievements often seem to involve survival - be that going on high, scary rides in Florida despite her fear of heights, or making it through the surprise birthday meal arranged by the PSIT team!
