John St. Hill has been made deputy chief investment officer (CIO) in a newly created role at the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST).
His appointment comes as the master trust expands its investment team to oversee a growing list of assets under management.
St. Hill, who starts work today reporting to CIO Mark Fawcett, has 24 years of experience in the investment management industry. He joins from the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) where he was senior portfolio manager responsible for the fixed income and equity programs.

Fawcett said: "We're already looking after over £1.3bn on behalf of our members and that's set to grow rapidly over the next few years. With this appointment we're adding to the expertise and experience of the investment team at this crucial time."
