They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.

Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. HR Trustees has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.

Role

Simon is a Client Director at PS Independent Trustees (PSIT). He acts as professional pension trustee for clients, with a mix of ongoing and Pension Protection Fund related work.

Background & experience

Simon started in the investment team of Hadrian Trustees Ltd, the corporate trustee to the Shipbuilding Industries Ltd Pension Scheme. He then worked for CE Heath Ltd before joining HR Trustees Ltd to concentrate on acting as a professional trustee.

At HR Trustees, Simon acted as trustee, secretary to the trustees and consultant for a wide variety of defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) schemes. This led him to senior roles with Open Trustees Ltd and Pitmans Trustees Ltd, where he was instrumental in helping PTL attain AAF/01 accreditation.

Simon is a DC specialist and is a trustee and chair for several DC master trusts and two small DC schemes. He also sits on two Governance Advisory Arrangements (GAAs) for contract based DC schemes.

Simon definitely likes to keep running. He is Chairman of Reading Joggers and has completed 2 marathons and hundreds of half-marathons, 10ks, 5ks, 10 mile races and Parkruns. He has also run on the iconic track at the Olympic Stadium (before it was dug up!).
