Investment Beliefs

Mercer’s Investments Beliefs apply globally and are consistent in every country in which we serve our clients

Effective investment strategy comes down to smart thinking. Our 5 frame Investment Beliefs underpin our investment approach and drive success in achieving your objectives.

Multi-Manager Funds

The Mercer Multi-Manager Funds are a series of fully distributing unit trusts that include 30 single sector funds and eight diversified funds. Through in-depth qualitative and quantitative research, Mercer seeks to blend investment managers with a range of complementary investment styles and strategies. We believe our multi-manager approach is more likely to outperform single manager funds through the entire business cycle, with lower volatility of returns.

Our clients benefit from the collective wisdom of Mercer’s global insights and perspective, while our local specialists provide timely and detailed advice based on regional market dynamics.


With unprecedented volatility, competitiveness and regulation in the investment market, it's hard to know where to focus next. Access our insights, news, tips and events for institutional investors and subscribe to Mercer's Investment Perspectives to ensure you're always up to date.

Stay up to date with the latest insights for wealth managers, insurers, superannuation funds and not-for-profits.

Responsible Investment

Responsible Investment (RI) is about looking long term and considering what needs to be done now in order to achieve sustainable investment growth in the future taking account of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors.

Responsible Investment (RI) integrates ESG risks and opportunities into the investment process, along with the exercise of active ownership (voting and engagement). A sustainable investment approach, which considers such risks and opportunities is preferred because those ESG factors can have a material impact on long-term risk and return outcomes. Mercer’s RI specialist team provides advice and research to mitigate portfolio risk, demonstrate active ownership, and construct portfolios that target long-term returns and sustainable growth. The team also helps those investors seeking greater alignment between their organisation’s values, policies, and investment allocations.


Mercer provides clients who make their own investment decisions with independent and objective advice.
