An interview with Mark Fawcett, chief investment officer at National Employment Savings Trust (Nest) in London, England, is presented. He says that their decision to adopt a low risk strategy for workers under 30 comes from their understanding that majority of their target audience is more risk averse than older people. He emphasizes that there is an investment case for a cautious approach. He stresses that the Nest is not against active management, but, it is about getting value for money.
