Thought leadership and consultations

We regularly conduct research and seek insights from outside of NEST to help us understand the needs of our members and employers.

Thought leadership

We share our thinking and the results of our research to help increase understanding of auto enrolment and encourage new ideas, stronger products and better outcomes for savers.

To help us respond to changes in the pension landscape we issue consultation documents to gather views and opinions from outside NEST. We seek views from a wide range of stakeholders, including those in the pensions industry, academics, consumer groups and employer representatives in the UK and overseas.

Position papers

From time-to-time we’ll issue position papers outlining our approach to issues affecting members of NEST and employers using the scheme. We also respond to consultations set up by others to share our research and experience more widely.
