Mercer has appointed Steven Seow as head of wealth management in Asia. He will be based in Singapore.
Mr. Seow’s appointment comes at a time of significant expansion of Mercer’s wealth management services globally. For example, Mercer recently introduced the Mercer Advisor Portal (MAP). Wealth managers, private client asset managers, private banks and financial advisors are able to access, through the portal, institutional-quality research and analytical tools to help improve the performance of their clients’ assets. The system was developed as an alternative to strictly quantitative approaches to asset allocation and manager selection. Other Mercer investment services that are well recognised in the wealth management industry include Mercer’s High Volume Research (HVR) and High Volume Monitoring (HVM) service.
“Steven’s credentials are very relevant to the expansion of services Mercer is bringing to the wealth market,” said Cara Williams, senior partner and global head of Mercer Investment’s global wealth management business. “He brings an impressive depth and breadth of experience serving the institutions in Asia that cater to wealth management clients, and we are delighted to have the benefit of his leadership as we continue to invest in Mercer’s wealth management capabilities globally and in the region.”
Mr. Seow has more than 12 years of experience in Asia, leading to increasing responsibility in wealth management in the region. Prior to joining Mercer, he was director of banking and wealth management at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte Ltd, which he joined in 2008. Mr. Seow’s previous experience in the field of private banking includes Citi Private Bank, IBM Business Consulting, PwC Consulting and Odyssey Financial Technologies.
