Mercer’s former head of Australian equities research, who left in 2006 to join HSBC Investments, has rejoined Mercer in a senior research role.
Nerida Law jumped ship from Mercer Investment Consulting in October 2006 to join HSBC Investments in Hong Kong, where she was director, head of multimanager.
However Law left HSBC mid-last year after less than two years in the role, and has since rejoined Mercer’s Hong Kong office as a senior researcher.
While at HSBC, Law oversaw the regional multimanager research team and the management of HSBC’s products and solutions in Asia, reporting to chief investment officer Leon Goldfeld.
She was originally hired by Mercer in 2005, and has 14 years’ experience in the research and investment management field.
Law has worked as senior investment manager at ipac, involved in research and development of portfolio strategies across multiple asset classes, and the development of asset class and risk management strategies.
She also held senior portfolio management positions at Deutsche Funds Management and Prudential Portfolio Managers.
Earlier this month Mercer announced the appointment of Clare Armstrong as senior Australian equities researcher, working under the leadership of Mercer’s Asia Pacific head of manager research, Marianne Feeley, based in Sydney.
Armstrong joined Mercer from Goldman Sachs JB Were, where she was head of managed investments research.
Law was not available for comment before deadline.
