Australia, Melbourne


Mercer has announced the appointment of Ruby Yadav to the role of Chief Risk and Compliance Officer, Pacific, joining the company’s Melbourne office in February 2020 as part of the Pacific Leadership team. 

With a career spanning more than 20 years, Ms Yadav brings to Mercer deep expertise having held a range of risk and compliance roles in the consulting sector and financial services, including insurance, banking and superannuation. She joins Mercer from UniSuper where she has held senior risk and legal services roles since 2015, most recently as the fund’s Chief Risk Officer. 

Mercer Pacific’s CEO Ben Walsh said Ms Yadav’s appointment was vital in strengthening the organisation’s continued commitment to best practice management of risk and compliance matters.

“Risk and Compliance are critical business functions that we’ve invested in heavily over the years, and while it has always been a top priority, with the changing regulatory environment particularly for superannuation funds, it is more important than ever. Sound governance, a proactive approach to risk management and strong relationships with our regulators are among our bedrocks at Mercer,” said Mr Walsh.

“Ruby has a strong track-record in risk management with a focus on accountability and efficiency. We are delighted that someone of Ruby’s calibre will be joining us to lead our strong risk and compliance team,” he said.
