Mercer boosts sustainable investment capabilities globally to meet surging client demand

10 August 2021

Mercer announced today a global expansion of its sustainable investment (SI) capabilities by an additional 30% to meet growing demand from clients looking to manage investment risk and return linked to climate change and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) drivers. Mercer’s award winning Sustainable Investment team is being expanded to support clients in meeting their sustainability goals and includes new hires to the global sustainable investment team based in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Switzerland, US and UK. Mercer also continues to increase its focus on sustainability in manager research, and has appointed Sarika Goel to the newly created role of Global Head of Sustainable Investment Research.

Mercer has seen substantial asset growth in its range of sustainable-oriented funds over the last 12 months. For example, Mercer’s Sustainable Global Equity Fund has more than doubled its assets to exceed USD2 billion at 31 Mar 2021. This growth is propelled by a surge in investor interest in funds that seek to deliver strong and sustainable investment returns by positioning for the transition to an economy with low or net zero carbon emissions as well as other sustainable investment trends.
