Who runs Nest?

Nest is a trust-based workplace pension scheme run by a Trustee, the Nest Corporation. The Trustee is comprised of up to 15 Board members and the employees of Nest Corporation.

The Board members are collectively referred to as the Board of Nest Corporation, or simply the Board. They’re supported by an executive team and specialists in pensions, product, design, investment, communications and business support.

As a public corporation, Nest Corporation reports to Parliament through the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. This includes issuing an annual report setting out what we’ve been doing over the last year and how we’re managing the Nest scheme.
