Principal, Mercer

Le Roy is an actuary and has more than 20 years of experience in advising pension fund trustees and large corporate clients. He has a particular focus on helping clients with risk management and strategy. In this, he integrates investment strategy, funding plans, security arrangements and covenant.

He leads a number of Mercer initiatives to help clients best clarify their objectives and goals, and then act in the most efficient way to achieve these. A key part of this is the need to fully understand the trade-off decisions that need be made over time.

Le Roy focuses on clear communication and arriving at pragmatic solutions. He believes in collaborative approaches and has for example introduced joint working groups between trustees and sponsor on a number of his clients.
