Janet Li, Wealth Leader for  Asia, said, “I am thrilled this service is launching in Singapore, where individual investors and their financial advisors are investment savvy, aware of the importance of self-funding retirement, and are looking for tools to help them with that goal.”
 
An important aspect of Mercer FundWatch is the forward-looking research methodology which analyzes fund characteristics and their likelihood to outperform over the market cycle.  

Mercer FundWatch is backed by Mercer’s global investment research, utilized for over 20 years by some of the world’s largest investors and the foundation of Mercer’s global advice on nearly $11 trillion1 of investments.
