Do it yourself Do it yourself
Tools and research

Client situation: A financial services client had an internal team that needed to supplement its expertise with research and quantitative tools.

Mercer solution: Our MercerInsight® manager research database provided investment research and tracked records, trends and analytics.

Results: This allowed the client to focus its time and resources in areas where it felt it could add the most value while still providing broad coverage and information.

Advice

Client situation: A business staples client had a legacy pension plan that it wanted to fund up as well as de-risk over time.

Mercer solution: We provided guidance in terms of asset/liability strategy and helped implement a consistent, stable contribution policy and investment glide path over time, along with funded status monitoring.

Results: Over the course of the relationship, the client was able to fund up the plan to over 100% funded as well as take advantage of pension risk transfer opportunities in the marketplace to right-size its liability profile.

Solutions

Client situation: An energy client wanted to consider risks more strategically and look at the advantages of a bundled solution that would address pension liabilities and assets together.

Mercer solution: By combining actuarial and investment services, our fully delegated solution enabled the client to realise cost savings, reduce risk, use fewer resources and employ best-practice governance.

Results: The client went from paying $10.6 million annually to $8 million annually in combined fees.

Our specialised actuarial and investment consulting teams offer an integrated approach to managing and monitoring pension cost, size and risk. We focus on managing pension risk by structuring plans to align assets and liabilities and implementing de-risking at opportune times. We also consider risk transfer opportunities through liability management exercises and annuity purchases with insurers to reduce the level of inherent risk in schemes.
