Mercer recruits Rastogi

Ravi Rastogi has joined consulting firm Mercer, based in London and with immediate effect. He is a partner and insurance group leader (Europe) to spearhead the expansion of its Insurance Group.

He joins from Towers Watson, where he was the EMEA leader of the Insurance Investment Advisory Group. Before that, he held senior pensions and insurance advisory positions for a number of leading firms. He has over 25 years of financial industry experience and is a qualified actuary.

Said Andrew Kirton, senior partner and investments leader (EuroPac): “Our intention is that Ravi and his Mercer colleagues help Marsh & McLennan deliver a comprehensive range of risk management and investment services to the insurance market.

“In a world of low bond yields, stiffer regulatory requirements and increased stakeholder expectations, insurers, reinsurers and captive insurers face increasing financial compliance and numerous investment challenges. Ravi is perfectly suited to helping clients address these issues. He’s a seasoned investment and actuarial professional with deep dive expertise and has experience helping insurance companies build sustainable and successful risk management and investment arrangements.”
