Mercer has announced the appointment of Tim Jenkins as a Partner within its Institutional Wealth team.
Mr Jenkins will deliver strategic consulting advice to superannuation funds, including advising on changes to insurance and member outcome requirements.
Mercer’s Institutional Wealth Leader Simon Eagleton said Mr Jenkins’ experience and industry knowledge will strengthen the firm’s consulting capabilities.
“Our clients are facing complex challenges due to the significant changes occurring in superannuation. We will continue to grow our investment and actuarial consulting teams to meet the growing demand for strategic advice,” Mr Eagleton said.
Having previously spent 28 years with Mercer in Senior Executive roles across the UK, Asia and the Pacific, Mr Jenkins returns to the consultancy from Rice Warner where he held the role of Executive General Manager, Superannuation. Prior to this, he worked at the National Australia Bank where he led the Corporate Superannuation product management team and established a new team responsible for the management of insurance within NAB’s superannuation funds.
Mercer Australia CEO Ben Walsh said clients would benefit greatly from Mr Jenkins’ knowledge and perspective drawn from 30-plus years in superannuation and financial services.
“Tim is a veteran in the industry and we’re pleased to welcome him back into the fold. Alongside our deeply experienced consultants, Tim’s appointment reaffirms that our clients have the very best minds on their team to help them seize opportunities and tackle the challenges,” Mr Walsh said.
“Since leaving Mercer six years ago, Tim has amassed an even greater wealth of knowledge, particularly in the product management and insurance space. I’m confident that his perspective and expertise will be of enormous value to our clients,” he said.
