Mercer has won the International Benefits Consultant of the Year category at this year's Global Pensions Awards. Mercer has achieved this recognition for the second year running and secured this top position following a two-part process. First, nominations were taken from Global Pensions readers drawn from 9,000 subscribers worldwide, and the shortlisted firms were then assessed by a panel of 20 judges from across the pensions industry.
Mercer won on the basis of a submission that highlighted the firm's breadth and depth of capabilities and unrivalled provision of services to multinational companies. Recent service developments include pan-European pension plans, cross-border vehicles aimed at improving governance, increasing efficiencies and promoting mobility together with our Mobility Life Cycle, a new solution aimed at covering all aspects of expatriates' needs, including retirement benefits.
John Hall, EMEA Head of Mercer's International Consulting group, commented: "We are delighted to have won this award again which recognises our commitment to meeting client needs by delivering innovative and business-relevant services to our multinational clients.
"Winning this award for a second straight year is a tribute to the calibre and commitment of our international consultants and our dedicated in-country benefits experts, together with their ability to bring seamless global solutions to our clients."
Raquel Pichardo-Allison, Editor at Global Pensions, said: "The Global Pensions Awards is the only industry event that allows pension funds to nominate their providers, making this award a true sign of the quality of service provided to clients. This year, the entries were stronger than ever. We congratulate Mercer on their strong achievement."
