Australia , Melbourne


Five Mercer multi-manager funds were added to the Macquarie Wrap and HUB24 superannuation and pension platforms last month, broadening Mercer’s strategic relationship with the retail investor market.  


The addition of the Mercer funds to these platforms brings financial advisers and their super and pension clients the same suite of funds and award-winning investment solutions that have long delivered value to the institutional sector. 


Simon Eagleton, Mercer’s Pacific Market Leader of Investments, said, “We’re thrilled with these developments and the fact it takes the strength of our institutional insights and experience to retail investors.”


“We’re excited more platforms are embracing innovation and that more financial advisers and their clients will now have access to the suite of innovative Mercer diversified funds and award-winning investment solutions,” said Mr Eagleton.


The funds listed below are now approved for both Macquarie Investment Super Manger/Consolidator, and Manager/Consolidator; as well as for Hub 24 Super and Hub 24 Invest:
