Mercer has named Graeme Mather as market business leader for its Investment Consulting business in Australia/New Zealand, as the company continues to strengthen its leadership in the Asia Pacific region.

Mather will succeed Simon Eagleton who will soon relocate to Mercer's Singapore office.

Eagleton was recently promoted to the role of Asia Pacific region business leader of Mercer's Investment Consulting business, reflecting the continued strong demand for Mercer's investment advice in these key markets.

Mather will jointly report to Eagleton and Mercer's managing director & market leader for Australia/New Zealand, David Anderson.

Mather joined Mercer in 1998 and brings a wealth of investment consulting and management experience to the market.

He managed the London office for Investment Consulting, Mercer's largest investment consulting centre, before relocating to Australia in January 2010.

He has had 14 years experience in the retirement savings and pension investment industry and has led consulting engagements with some of the UK's largest pension funds on a full range of investment issues.

Eagleton says as a global firm Mercer is able to draw upon a deep pool of talent for leadership roles.  

"I am confident Graeme's international perspective and management experience will assist us in continuing to build on our tremendous success to date in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

"Our clients will also benefit from Graeme's considerable investment consulting expertise, particularly his knowledge of defined contribution target date strategies, pension phase solutions, as well as risk management within defined benefit schemes," says Eagleton.

Anderson says as a team Mercer will continue to be inquisitive about the growth opportunities in the market across its consulting, outsourcing and investments businesses. 

Mather's appointment as market business leader for Investment Consulting in Australia/New Zealand will be effective from June 1, 2010. He will continue to be based in Sydney.
