Mercer has formed an alliance with Supercorp's cloud platform superMate to offer its clients a more efficient service to order actuarial certificates.
The self managed super fund (SMSF) administration provider 'superMate' is designed to allow accountants, wealth managers and advisers who administer SMSFs for trustees to obtain Mercer actuarial certificates from the latest release of the platform.
David Anderson, managing director & market leader for Australia/New Zealand at Mercer's said the SMSF market offers an opportunity to provide the firm's superannuation expertise direct to advisers and trustees.
He noted that setting up an integrated and seamless platform with superMate, with the efficiencies of its automated in-house service, gives the firm the scale required to deliver a high quality, cost-efficient product.
Additionally, he said this new offering "adds to our existing range of products and services for SMSF trustees, accountants and advisers as they prepare for retirement."
"This is the first of a new round of product innovations in the SMSF market for Mercer as we roll out our suite of governance and compliance services, retirement tools and calculators in the coming year."
Mercer's business alliance with superMate is expected to result in orders of roughly 10,000 actuarial certificates each year.
