Through its new Casablanca Financial City hub in Morocco, Mercer will bolster its Health business and further penetrate the African market with Wealth and Career solutions.
“Africa is an important part of our growth strategy for Mercer. We’ve been operating on the continent for many years and we continuously look for ways to bring differentiated value to our clients,” said David Anderson, Mercer Growth Markets Region President.
“Strengthening our footprint in this growing and thriving region will allow us to improve client service across their Health and Benefits needs, and will allow clients greater access to our world class Wealth and Career services.”
Mercer currently serves clients in 41 of Africa’s 54 sovereign states.
The firm is expanding its market presence to match the burgeoning business landscape. North Africa continues to show great promise and Mercer is committed to being a partner in assisting our clients in the region.
Mercer’s ongoing investment in Francophone Africa and throughout the continent will enable the global consulting leader to service evolving client needs with greater flexibility and customization.
“Morocco is the ideal hub for Mercer’s continued growth across Francophone Africa.” said Mustafa Faizani, Mercer CEO UAE, India, Middle East, Turkey and Africa Zone.
