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
PSIT were overall more professional than others.
Paul Staniland,

In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. HR Trustees’ pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.
David Wilman,
CFO at Survitec Group
Excellent service - as expected and why PSIT was chosen.
Stuart Barker ,
Independent Occupational Pensions Consultant, RSPCA
They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

Role

Wayne is Managing Director of PS Independent Trustees Limited (PSIT). His clients range from small independent companies to multinationals listed in the UK, Ireland and overseas. The largest sponsor has a turnover in excess of £5bn.

Background & experience

Wayne started his pensions career with Prudential in the specialist area of Small Self Administered Schemes working on direct pension scheme investment.

He continued in this role with Alexander Clay & Partners, working with larger occupational pension schemes. He also undertook secretary to the trustees, pensions manager and consultant roles on international clients.

In 2001, Wayne moved back to concentrate on acting solely as a professional pension trustee. Before joining PSIT, he was a director of another trustee business where he was appointed by the Pensions Regulator to the failed MG Rover pension arrangements.

Wayne is a member of the Group Governance Technical Committee. He also leads our research into de-risking and delegated investment management propositions. He has worked on many high profile trustee appointments, been involved in several industry initiatives and is a regular speaker at industry events.

Outside of work, Wayne loves motorised vehicles - be they cars, bikes or boats!
