December 2020: Introduction to Investment Consulting
This is the recording of MASSA's December webinar, Introduction to Investment Consulting, which took place on December 2nd, 2020. The original event description can be found below:
"Join us on December 2nd at 6pm for a webinar about investment consulting! An associate and an analyst from the Mercer Investment Consulting team will be joining the webinar to discuss their career paths, share their experiences and provide an introduction to Investment Consulting.
The webinar will cover the basics of investment consulting, including the type of work that they do on a daily basis. Investment consulting involves assisting employers in designing, implementing, and managing their retirement plans by providing expert advice and guidance on all aspects surrounding their investments.
Pension investment consultants use their pension expertise to provide advice and insight on defined benefit and defined contribution plans, as well as other institutions such as university endowments. We work specifically with corporations, and client assets range in size from under a million, to multi-billions of dollars. At the analyst level, work consists of gathering, analyzing and presenting data in such a way that clients can understand and make the best decisions for their company."
