Improving Employee Retirement Incomes and Employer Outcomes

The yin and yang of defined contribution plans. For employers, defined contribution retirement plans represent freedom from financial volatility, traditional pension risk, market volatility, and long-term financial uncertainty; however, they also impose new risks and responsibilities on the employer. For employees, defined contributions offer individual control, greater flexibility, and, in an ideal world, access to institutionally priced investments.

Defined Contributions — Refined for Your Organisation

Mercer can help design, plan, and manage customized defined contribution plans. We help employers optimize plans both globally and locally. We align organizational objectives with workforce demographics and employee behaviors to identify how employers can help improve retirement outcomes for their employees while meeting workforce management needs.
