Mercer FundWatch: Modern Ratings for Modern Investors

Mercer FundWatch is an investment ratings service providing research and ratings on funds available to individual investors and financial advisors.


  • Delivers high-quality, forward-looking research on funds and a simple rating system
  • Focuses on the “exposure” a fund provides and net-of-fee future performance prospects
  • Offers access to a Mercer news bulletin that highlights changes affecting rated funds





Ratings With an Eye Towards the Future
Mercer FundWatch features a forward-looking methodology that helps guide individual investors and financial advisors to those funds which we believe have greater out-performance prospects. Because of this, even new funds can receive ratings.



A Research-Driven Methodology


Our research process focuses on identifying alpha through the following methodology:

Research driven: Our forward-looking, research-intensive process builds on a deep understanding of each investment fund covered.


Repeatable: We use a robust and consistent framework to assess each fund’s capabilities.


Evidence based: We focus on characteristics that have been shown to enhance the probability of sustainable alpha generation, which can vary over time and by asset class.


Flexible: We use flexibility and past experience to focus on the relevant characteristics for a given fund.
