Financial News has announced that Deb Clarke, Global Head of Investment Research at Mercer, has again been listed as one of the 100 Most Influential Women in European Finance (FN100). This is her fifth time being named to the FN100 list, having previously received the honour in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Ms Clarke has been recognised for her role in managing and overseeing the delivery of consistent value-add from Mercer’s dedicated manager research team which has been central to informing investment decisions for clients and Mercer’s $241.9 billion* in assets under delegated management. Since joining Mercer in 2005, Deb has been a champion of cognitive diversity within the asset management industry and as Chair of the Global Strategic Research committee and the executive sponsor for the Global Investment Forums, she has been instrumental in developing research that supports global growth.
On being named as one of the FN100 list, Ms Clarke commented: “At a time when women are playing such an important role in shaping European finance, I am delighted to have been named as one of the FN100. I share this success with my colleagues at Mercer who continue to promote a culture of inclusivity and provide opportunities for women to thrive in finance.”
The unranked list is derived from a longlist of almost 500 eligible European candidates who are assessed on their leadership within their organisation, influence within their sector or industry, successes over the past year and their capacity to shape their business or industry in the year ahead.
