Company Profile - Who we are

Focus
Mercer Private Markets operates worldwide as a highly specialized advisor for leading institutional investors in the fields of private equity, real estate and infrastructure.

Experience and vision
Mercer Private Markets AG was established in 1996 and is a pioneer in advisory mandates for institutional clients. With the acquisition by Marsh & McLennan Companies, we are forming Mercer Private Markets, which includes Mercer Private Markets AG (former SCM), a global center of excellence for private markets investments. With a strong platform and a presence in 7 countries and 80+ professional staff, current AuM in Private Markets of USD 11bn and a 20-year performance history, we intend to expand our global franchise and remain a partner of choice through delivering high quality services to clients.

Mercer Private Markets AG as part of Mercer Investments
With the acquisition of Mercer Private Markets AG by Marsh & McLennan Companies, which was completed in February 2015, a new chapter began. Mercer Private Markets AG continues to exist as an independent FINMA and AIFM licensed company with the current management and team serving existing and new customers. Our platform is implemented globally and the management continues to hold important functions in the combined unit.

The advantages of this combination are various. Our customers get access to additional expertise (for example, ESG fund ratings or co-investments) and more resources in all parts of the world. Another advantage lies in the synergy to share the regulatory duties and compliance resource of a larger organization. This gives us the freedom to continue to focus on investment and customer service.

Team
The lean organization of Mercer Private Markets AG, with over 20 specialized employees and an investment committee whose members have remained the same for over 8 years, ensures best-in-class advisory services for all clients. Mercer Private Marketsg AG is now functionally integrated into the private markets business of Mercer Investments and the combined team will grow to around 80 people worldwide, of which 33 are private market investment professionals. We operate out of offices in Zurich, London and Frankfurt, as well as the United States. In addition, our reach will now extend beyond Hong Kong into Australasia.
