Use NEST as DC responsible investment benchmark

UKSIF26th April 2011

UKSIF has called for employers to use the responsible investment approach offered by the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) as a benchmark when selecting defined contribution pensions for their staff.

Penny Shepherd, UKSIF Chief Executive said: “NEST’s approach to long-term responsible investment and ownership offers a practical benchmark particularly for less engaged or knowledgeable employers. The Pensions Regulator should encourage all employers to include modern responsible investment approaches in their pension provision.”
