Invesco enters strategic partnership with Nest Insight

Strategic partnership with Nest Insight
Working to improve outcomes for defined contribution savers

Building on a strong track record in defined contribution research, and existing partnership with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, Invesco has partnered with Nest Insight to support their ambitious programme of research, publications and events.

The Nest Insight Unit was established in 2016 to understand and address the challenges facing low and moderate-income savers. With 8 million members, Nest has a rich store of data and insights on the needs and behaviours of a previously under researched population of savers. Nest Insight works to ensure that these insights and data are available to the global academic, financial services and public policy communities.

Invesco will support and help shape this important programme of work through sponsorship, the contribution of its deep industry expertise and insights, and by helping the programme to reach a wider audience. Nest Insight and Invesco believe that working in partnership enables the delivery of a more comprehensive and impactful research agenda than would otherwise be possible.

Commenting on the partnership Dean Heaney, Head of Government & Strategic Institutions at Invesco said:

 “Through the application of joint insight, we are keen to uncover solutions to the challenges faced by many DC schemes in providing pensions and a post retirement income. Invesco’s experience in working with some of the largest asset owners globally, gives us real insight into these challenges.

This combined with our strong track record in research, including our DC language studies in the UK and US and our partnership with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, makes for a great fit with the work of the Nest Insight Unit. We’re excited to be able to support them in their ambitious agenda”.

Commenting on the appointment of Invesco as a strategic partner, Will Sandbrook, Nest Insight’s Executive Director, said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome Invesco on board as a strategic partner for Nest Insight. Invesco is a global leader in the retirement and investment fields, with a great track record in research in the DC sector. At Nest Insight we want to drive real change. We conduct research that’s the first of its kind, testing practical solutions and sharing those insights widely and freely.

We believe that what we learn can help inform and support others who are similarly working to improve the outcomes of defined contribution savers, and help those who are yet to start saving, in the UK and around the globe. This partnership will be instrumental in helping Nest Insight to deliver and expand our ground-breaking programme of research.”
