What is a NEST Pension?

The National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) is a pension provider that was established by the government in 2010, following pension reforms and the introduction of the Pensions Act 2008. 

NEST Pension was set up by the government to help deliver its auto-enrolment initiative, to ensure all eligible workers have access to a defined contribution workplace pension scheme. 

Thus, rather than being owned by shareholders, NEST is a public service operation.
