“We are very proud of our growth in this important market segment. Our success is reflective of the market’s desire for greater support in running an efficient investment program as clients seek improved performance, enhanced risk management and reduced costs,” said Phil de Cristo, President and Global Leader of Mercer Investments. “Our position as the global leader in investment consulting and our intentional development of global portfolio management capabilities has enabled us to provide innovative implementation capabilities across our primary segments: defined benefit, defined contribution and endowments and foundations.”

“We expect to see continued strong demand for delegated solutions in the UK and wider Europe,” said Michael Dempsey, European Head of Mercer’s Delegated Solutions. “Defined benefit pension funds are looking for support to manage increasingly complex investment portfolios and in adopting a more dynamic approach to navigating current market challenges and volatility.”
