Walsh said in response to his new position, “Recent product and platform developments for Mercer have resulted in a significantly enhanced and scalable super fund administration and customer experience capability, and some very attractive investment products, and Brian’s addition to the team will help us communicate the value of these developments to potential new clients.”

“Competition within the super funds market has never been as fierce, and we have steadily and strategically been transforming our services to help our clients not only weather, but thrive, in this environment,” he added.

Among the new products are Mercer’s range of life-cycle funds and a longevity product that builds on the idea of a pooled survival fund or tontine.
