​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,

When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.

Pension scheme mediation

Conflicts of interest in pension scheme funding discussions and pension negotiations during corporate merger and acquisition activity are often complex and can sometimes be contentious.

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.
