The appointments all form part of Mercer's expanding global responsible investment team. Timothy Stamp, Max Messervy and Tomi Nummela are joining the firm and Stamp represents the Australian hire. Nummela will join the UK responsible investment team, and Messervy joins in the US.
Stamp links with Mercer having most recently served as a senior consultant in KPMG's human rights and social impact team. He previously held a role with the consultant as a social auditor.
During his time at KPMG Stamp worked with a vast array of clients across FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods), real estate, natural resources and financial services. His role was to understand the human rights and ESG risks and opportunities relevant to KPMG clients.
Mercer says the hires will focus on integrating environmental, social and corporate governance risks and opportunities into client portfolios. Mercer global business leader in responsible investment Helga Birgden welcomed the appointments, citing climate change as an ESG risk Mercer was looking to address by leveraging the shared knowledge of the three hires.
"We're excited to welcome Max, Tomi and Timothy to our global responsible Investment team," she said.
"We look forward to leveraging their collective industry knowledge and experience to provide exceptional support for our clients who are looking to address ESG risks and opportunities, including climate change, on both a regional and global scale."
The global responsible investment team at Mercer has existed since 2004 covering North America, EMEA and the Asia Pacific. Stamp will be based out of Mercer's Sydney office and will report to Birgden.
