Is the Money Advice Service in bed with NEST?

Caroline Rookes may have been the chief executive of the MAS for two years now, but only one week ago it was announced that she has also been appointed as a trustee on the board of NEST.

Curiously, my sources tell me that the mastertrust has been enjoying more than its fair share of publicity from the supposedly independent advice service.

Indeed, a quick look at the website suggests this is the case. NEST enjoys their own dedicated page and section, while its competitors are relegated to a group page for multi-employer pension schemes.

Bit odd for an organisation tasked by the government with providing independent financial advice.
