NEST announce a change in investment strategy

Trustees Agenda posted on 17 July, 2018

NEST is to begin investing directly in commodities on behalf of its 6.9 million members. This decision is NEST's first segregated mandate, having previously invested in pooled funds. This new investment strategy has been designed around NEST's environmental, social and governance requirements. The Chief Investment Officer from NEST commented, 'Commodities offer good value protection as inflationary pressures rise around the world and are supported by strong global trends.'
