Learn about the Benefits of Mercer’s Pension Risk Exchange
Increased Sponsor Readiness
With real-time online annuity pricing and trigger monitoring, Mercer Pension Risk Exchange provides plan sponsors access to the latest market price information to enable an annuity purchase at an acceptable cost within the desired time. Designing the platform to be optimized for mobile devices enhances the convenience of accessing pricing.
Market Transparency and Dynamic Monitoring
Obtaining accurate annuity prices is usually a lengthy and complex process, further complicated by market volatility and rapidly changing insurer preferences. A lack of price visibility often leads to missed opportunities. The Exchange offers unmatched price transparency, enabling plan sponsors to continuously monitor plan-specific metrics and to take action on market opportunities in Canada as well as across the US and United Kingdom.
Reduced Execution Timelines
Plan provisions and client data are shared with insurers as part of the on-boarding process, allowing ample time for analysis and for questions to be asked and answered. With this work done well in advance of the execution phase, plan sponsors can request and receive binding pricing in a matter of days — rather than weeks — when a market opportunity arises.
