Does MercerInsight give access only to Mercer’s investment due diligence database?
MercerInsight includes not only our investment strategy due diligence research, but also our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance research, and Mercer Sentinel’s library of Operational Risk Assessments. Subscribers also get access to Mercer’s exclusive research and intellectual capital Mercer publishes throughout the year.
Does MercerInsight give access to only qualitative analysis?
MercerInsight is a portal to our qualitative, forward- looking research, but also contains quantitative and risk analysis tools for easy performance-based screening and comparisons.
Does MercerInsight track the performance of Mercer’s forward-looking ratings?
Yes. We track the value-add of our A-rated strategies on a rolling 10-year basis, published quarterly.
Is a MercerInsight subscription based on a per-user cost?
No. Unlike most of our competitors who charge per-user, MercerInsight subscriptions generally include unlimited user access at no additional cost. This means you won’t have to constantly track and monitor individual users.
How do Mercer universes differ from similar databases?
Every product on the platform is categorized and reviewed by Mercer before being included in a Mercer universe. Safeguards are also in place to help eliminate biases such as cherry picking, backfill, and survivorship bias. These measures help ensure scrubbed universe calculations for a true peer comparison.
