1. Wealth Management
Wealth isn’t just about investments, retirement and financial planning: it’s about enabling individual financial wellness. At Mercer, we thrive on combining data and technology with highly numerate yet helpful people to help our clients make sense of numbers. In addition to developing model portfolios, providing client risk profiles and product risk ratings, advising on manager selection, and monitoring performance, we can also train agencies and support your team with materials and ideas to grow your wealth management business to help your employees achieve wealth and spend it wisely.
With over 11 trillion of assets under advice, Mercer is ranked at number 1 in terms of assets under advice.1 That’s why we offer a continuum of advice: from research and tools such as Mercer FundWatch to advice and delegated solutions. Our consultants understand the ins and outs of everything from asset liability modelling and investment strategy, to actuarial and accounting valuation, manager selection, performance monitoring, capital market assumptions and the material impact that environmental, social and corporate governance issues (ESG) can have on long-term risk and return outcomes. And we pass relevant advice on all these subjects to our clients: because managing wealth isn’t just about accumulating it, it’s about ensuring good financial wellness for both the short and the long term.
