Client feedback

PSIT were overall more professional than others.
Paul Staniland,
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,
The Altro Pension and Life Scheme
​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
​Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.
Clare Cairns,
Campden BRI Group
So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.
