When you work with your clients to choose a NEST pension, you’ll be in good company. One in three businesses who’ve already set up a workplace pension has done so with us.

These businesses are a variety of sizes with different pay grades and expectations.

They’ve chosen us because of our commitment to delivering the best scheme possible for our over three million members. So you can feel confident that our scheme is suitable for your clients.

Developed with payroll providers in mind

At NEST, we want to make it as easy as possible for payroll providers like you to use our service. Our innovative web services mean our scheme can integrate seamlessly into existing payroll software such as Moneysoft, Sage, Iris and many others.

This automates how employers can submit payroll data, reducing your workload and the risk of errors.

Indeed you’ll find that we’ll help you to simplify your month-to-month payroll obligations.

Extra help for payroll providers

We want to make your life as a payroll provider easier. We’ve developed NEST’s online help centre so you can get support should you want it. With over 700 online pages about how the scheme works, including step-by-step guides and FAQs, you should be able to access all the help you need.

A scheme you can trust

We were set up by government specifically to deal with auto enrolment. We follow auto enrolment best practice, making it easy for payroll providers like you to enrol your clients and stay compliant.

And because we’re a trust-based scheme, our main objective is to provide the best outcome for our members’ investment.  

Keeping things simple

At NEST, we think it’s important that our members understand how we look after their money and their likely retirement outcomes so they can make more informed decisions about their future. So we make our communications as easy to understand as possible.

Help your client choose a quality scheme

When you work with your client to select a pension, you can feel confident that, with NEST, they’ll get a good quality scheme. We aim to make your clients’ workers pots grow through carefully-managed and well-diversified portfolios.

Our experts are focused on growing your clients’ money without taking undue risk. They invest across a wide range of global assets to help make the most of the opportunities while managing the risks.

The team also aims to take the right investment risk at the right time. Because what’s right when your clients’ workers first start saving won’t be the same as when they get closer to retirement.

A scheme to suit all needs

At NEST, we make sure our investment approach is of the highest quality and right for a broad range of people, ages and industries.

We know that nearly all people automatically enrolled into a pension scheme stay in the fund they’re first put into. So we’ve designed default funds around the year we expect members to retire.

So whether your clients’ workers are 16 or 75 they can feel confident their money is being looked after carefully.

A scheme that thinks long-term

We want to get the best outcome for our members over decades, and think well-run organisations with sound environmental and social practices have a better chance of sustaining long-term success and profitability. This means we consider how companies and markets operate and how they treat people and the environment in our investment processes.
