“These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. HR Trustees is geared to delivering that.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSIT was chosen.”
“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the HR Trustees team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
“PSIT offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSIT scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSIT shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
“I enjoy working with PSIT and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
