Funds Overview - Multi-Manager Funds


The Mercer Multi-Manager Funds are a set of single sector and diversified multi-manager funds that incorporate Mercer’s best ideas on asset allocation, investment manager selection, operational efficiency and sustainable investing.  The Funds enable investors to delegate some or all of their investment portfolio management to Mercer.

The Mercer Multi-Manager Funds are constructed and managed with the same expertise, investment beliefs, research, insights and the best of our thinking, ensuring a cohesive approach to formulating client advice and solutions.  Each fund comprises an optimal combination of highly rated, external managers that are hand-picked, appointed and monitored by our portfolio management professionals.

The Funds are designed for specific investment time horizons and aim to outperform single-manager funds through the entire business cycle, with lower volatility of returns.

The Mercer Multi-Manager Funds are ‘fully distributing unit trusts’ that have a minimum initial investment of $100,000.

Mercer also has a superannuation master trust, the Mercer Super Trust, and a pooled superannuation trust, the Mercer Super Investment Trust, which also invest in the Mercer Multi-Manager Funds.
