Mercer, together with a number of project partner investors, is about to revisit the seminal 2011 report examining the strategic asset allocation implications of climate change so that investors more effectively capture risk and return insights and integrate them into their current investment processes.
Mercer is currently the only investment consultancy assigning explicit ratings on ESG by strategy, as part of its manager research process.
Responsible Investment (RI) integrates environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) risks and opportunities, along with the exercise of active ownership (voting and engagement), given these can have a material impact on long-term risks and returns. Consequently, a sustainable investment approach, which considers such risks and opportunities, is preferred. Our RI specialists provide advice and conduct innovative research to mitigate portfolio risk, demonstrate active ownership, and construct portfolios targeting long-term returns and sustainable growth. The team also helps investors seeking to align their organisation’s values and investment allocations.
Mercer’s Investment Framework for Sustainable Growth outlines how we work with our clients in each stage of the investment process, from beliefs and policy, to processes and portfolio. Refer left for more details on what we can offer at each stage and to find out more information.
Mercer has been leading the field in sustainable investing since 2004. It has a long history of innovative research, for example: examining climate change and strategic asset allocation implications in our seminal 2011 study (soon to be revisited); championing governance, as with our 2013 report on long-term shareholders and loyalty-driven securities; and as the only investment consultancy assigning explicit ESG ratings to enable clients to easily integrate ESG across asset class strategies.

Wake Up! No investor, government or economy can afford to ignore investment opportunities in energy, infrastructure and technologies that reduce water consumption, waste and emissions as Helga Birgden, Leader of Mercer’s Asia Pacific Responsible Investment Team, explains.
