Both men already work at the consultancy, and form part of Mercer Wealth's team of investment professionals across Asia.
Investment consultancy Mercer has appointed two research leaders from within its own ranks.
Simon Coxeter (pictured) has been named in the newly-created role of head of Asia-Pacific manager research and Jean de Kock has become the strategic research director for Asia, Middle East and Africa.
The men are part of Mercer Wealth’s team of more than 160 investment professionals across Asia.
Coxeter has been the strategic research director for Asia, Middle East and Africa and Latin America for the past four years.
De Kock has succeeded Coxeter as strategic research director for AMEA. At the firm since 2012 and in Singapore since 2018, he is part of the firm’s fixed income boutique, and supports regional consulting teams in Singapore, Hong Kong and Mainland China. He will continue to carry out manager research tasks alongside his new responsibilities for strategic research.
