Investments

A Value Added Approach

The complexities, nuances, and dependencies that factor into every investment decision grow exponentially each year. To effectively manage and grow investments requires a higher level of rigor and specialization. It’s a level of expertise few organizations can achieve — and it’s what sets Mercer apart. Our global team of 1,200 professionals and 120 manager researchers provides in-depth expertise in research, advice, and solutions that very few can match.

Research and Tools — a Deeper Dive

At Mercer Investments, our Global Investment Manager Database (GIMD™) contains ratings on more than 10,000 investment strategies. Investors can quickly scan strategies and get the depth of information they need to make informed decisions.

A Higher Caliber of Advice

Mercer provides clients who make their own investment decisions with independent and objective advice. Our clients benefit from the collective wisdom of Mercer’s global insights and perspective, while our local specialists provide timely and detailed advice based on regional market dynamics.

Proven Investment Solutions

Mercer’s fiduciary management solution is designed for clients who want to delegate some or all of their decisions. Our specialist investment managers develop customized strategic allocation advice and provide continuous governance and portfolio oversight.

Defined Benefit Pension Plans

Mercer can help defined benefits plans manage persistent risks, such as market volatility, uncertain liabilities, and pressure to reduce expense and contributions.
Expand

Anyone managing a defined benefits plan today faces persistent risks and evolving realities: market volatility, uncertain liabilities, shifting regulations, and pressure to reduce expenses and contributions. Succeeding in this landscape requires an agile strategy and process that can dynamically react to market conditions and seize opportunities while managing risk and expense.

Defined Contribution Plans

Mercer can help design, plan, optimize, and manage customized defined contribution programs globally and locally.
Expand

The yin and yang of defined contribution plans. For employers, defined contribution retirement plans represent freedom from financial volatility, traditional pension risk, market volatility, and long-term financial uncertainty; however, they also impose new risks and responsibilities on the employer. For employees, defined contributions offer individual control, greater flexibility, and, in an ideal world, access to institutionally priced investments.

Employee Financial Wellness

Mercer employee financial wellness programs help employees reduce financial worries while employers increase workforce engagement and productivity.
Expand

Employees facing fewer financial worries and distractions; employers benefitting from a more focused, engaged, and productive workforce — employee financial wellness programs can help employees find balance and control over their finances, now and throughout their lifetime. Raising the level of employees’ financial consciousness can reduce absenteeism and lower turnover rates while raising employee satisfaction and improving the employer brand.

Alternative Investments

Mercer alternative investments provide a solid means to guard against the volatility of equities, hedge against inflation, and achieve better returns.

Diversifying your portfolio is the one principle every professional investor agrees on. But how to do it without sacrificing returns? At Mercer, we believe the answer is to maintain a meaningful allocation to a diversified portfolio of alternatives.

Endowments and Foundations

Mercer is dedicated to helping endowments and foundations not only realize higher risk-adjusted returns but also fulfill a higher mission.
Expand

The question for endowments and foundations is how to develop a portfolio that will not only withstand the “crisis du jour” or the “bull market of the moment” but also features an investment strategy that will endure. As one of the world’s longest-serving fiduciaries between institutional investors and asset managers, Mercer understands the importance of investing for the long term.
