    The NEST scheme is ok; what don't you like about it?

    Unusual for a self employed person to use NEST. What made you do that?

    I was wondering if any one can direct me to a better pension scheme.
    Better in what sense?

    NEST is basic and aimed at auto-enrolment for small schemes that the big companies cant really do cost-effectively. It's not aimed at self-employed (although they do it - which I personally consider being a bad thing given their taxpayer funding). Its not a bad scheme but there are plenty better in most areas. Its just a case of making sure what you have matches what you are looking for in a pension.
