UK - Mercer has appointed Michael Kinney as new European head of implemented consulting from Bramdean's multi-manager business.
Kinney is to be responsible for consistent delivery of implemented consulting and fiduciary management services across Mercer's European client base.
Andrew Kirton, worldwide partner and European head of Mercer's investment consulting business said: "Demand for outsourcing of investment decision-making is increasing in a number of markets, not least because of the ever-increasing complexity of investment arrangements.”
Previously Kinney was head of research at Bramdean, where he covered both traditional and alternative assets and was a contributor to the design, construction and implementation of Bramdean's listed alternatives offering.
Businesses are experiencing auto-enrolment data error rates of up to 50%, posing questions over the reliability of pension records, Pensionsync says.
A nationwide survey of committee and local pension board members of the Local Government Pension Scheme has revealed high levels of confidence in all areas of their responsibility.
