Pensions & Auto Enrolment

No advice will be offered by CRM in relation to the pension provider’s funds or performance, nor the suitability of the provider compared to other options available in the wider market. This is the case at the initial set up and ongoing. Employers should consider whether they require independent financial advice.

Facts on Pension Provider.


NEST Corporation, the Trustee that runs the NEST scheme, is a non-departmental public body. It’s accountable to Parliament through the Department for Work and Pensions but is generally independent of government in its day-to-day decisions

NEST Corporation is made up of a Chair and up to 14 Trustee Members. They’re supported by an executive team and specialists in pensions product design, investment, communications and business support.

As a public body, NEST Corporation reports to Parliament through the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. This includes issuing an annual report setting out what they have been doing over the last year and how they are managing the NEST scheme.

The default fund for the scheme is the NEST Retirement Date Fund. For more information on this default fund please visit // This webpage also provides a link to the other fund choices that are available to members through NEST.

The management charge on the fund is a contribution charge of 1.8% which is taken from each contribution and then an annual management charge of 0.3% is applied to the accrued fund.

  • Contribution cap of £4,700 pa.
  • 5 investment choices which include 1 risk based managed fund.
  • Transfers are not allowed in or out.
