Mercer, a global leader in redefining the world of work, reshaping retirement and investment outcomes, and unlocking real health and well-being, and Financial Wellbeanz, a digital employee financial wellness platform provider, today announced a strategic alliance to bring a broader suite of financial wellness solutions to clients.
The alliance brings together the Financial Wellbeanz digital platform and Mercer’s private wealth expertise, capabilities and solutions to create a new standard in delivering financial wellness to employees.
“Employee financial wellness is an important issue for our clients. Indeed, as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic we expect an increasing need for all employers to support their employees across their full wellness needs. With many sectors of the economy undergoing digital transformation, the Financial Wellbeanz platform is a perfect fit for both Mercer and our clients’,” said Michael Lacey, head of private wealth at Mercer Ireland. “As a result of this alliance, our clients’ employees will now be able to access exclusive content and solutions 24/7, wherever they may be.”
“Mercer is a standout leader in employee wellness and advisory in Ireland, and its capabilities are an important addition to our platform. Through this strategic alliance, we will now be able to reach a much larger audience,” said Emmet Rennick, CEO of Financial Wellbeanz. “Wellness is a key issue for large corporates and every employee wellness programme has, or should have, a financial wellness pillar. We know that many organisations are struggling with how to make a meaningful impact for their employees in this sensitive space. The Financial Wellbeanz platform will be a game changer for them and their employees.”
Effective immediately, Mercer’s private wealth solutions will be available for Financial Wellbeanz clients on the Financial Wellbeanz platform and Mercer clients have the option to incorporate the financial wellbeanz platform within their existing benefits set up.
