Investment solutions could help you reach your goals sooner

Many investors seek guidance on setting a strategy, manager research, asset allocation, and the day-to-day operations of an investment program. We call these ‘investment solutions’. There are many terms used for these services including OCIO, delegated solutions, fiduciary management, or implemented consulting, but they all centre on the same thing: supporting institutional investors to meet their goals more efficiently. Implementing an investment solution can help you maintain control and feel confident knowing your investments are in professional hands, while still maintaining ultimate control.

They are not always easy to access, are worth consideration. A sophisticated institutional investment solution can help investors access these assets efficiently.

Private markets: broad opportunities, enhanced diversification and higher yield

Private markets are becoming increasingly popular as investors shift parts of their portfolios away from publicly traded assets in order to diversify their risk and return drivers. The opportunities in private markets span many sectors and regions, each offering something different to investors. Yet they all share the qualities of being shielded from much public market volatility and having the potential to earn a premium by being held over the long term.

However, accessing managers that invest in private markets can be challenging for some investors – this is where Mercer can help. We have been investing in these markets for more than 25 years, establishing deep relationships with a wide universe of highly-rated managers.
