TAL, Australia’s leading life insurance specialist, today announced that TAL Superannuation Limited (TASL) has appointed Mercer Australia as their implemented consultant for the TAL Superannuation and Insurance Fund (the Fund).
The six-year appointment is the result of a tender process TASL completed earlier this year.
TASL Director and TAL Group CEO & Managing Director, Brett Clark, said TASL’s independent appointment of Mercer will support the Fund to continue delivering sustainable returns for its members.
“The tender process confirmed Mercer’s deep expertise in the superannuation sector as well as the high calibre of their people and processes.
“Helping our members secure their financial future is our key priority. While a number of quality candidates were considered in the tender process, TASL judged Mercer to best meet TASL’s requirements. Mercer has a consistent track record that TASL believes will meet the current and future expectations of our members,” said Mr Clark.
Ben Walsh, Managing Director and CEO of Mercer Australia, said this appointment brings together two companies who both share a deep passion for service excellence and the delivery of real value to the customer.
“This appointment will deliver significant value to TASL and its members by having them access Mercer’s investment scale and capability.”
The appointment of Mercer will commence from 1 October 2017.
