“PSIT were overall more professional than others.”
“Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
“Very professional and engaged service.”
“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
To ease negotiations and avoid reaching a situation of impasse, consider appointing an independent trustee to your pension scheme on an interim basis right at the start of the process.
If your pension scheme negotiations have started but you’ve reached a position of stalemate or frayed relationships, professional pension mediation may be the answer.
Several of PSIT senior independent pension trustees are accredited Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution mediators. This means we can act as a neutral third party to work with all those involved to negotiate a settlement or agreement in complex pension negotiations and situations of conflict. As mediator, we ensure these situations are handled effectively and that good outcomes are achieved.
Our mediation skills are also reflected in how we approach our role as professional trustee – we act as consolidators rather than dictating what we want. Our clients tell us they find this beneficial .
If you are about to start pension funding discussions, or are finding resolution of a pension scheme issue difficult to achieve, find out more about how our pensions mediators can help you by contacting us.
