Mercer hires Willis Towers Watson veteran to lead wealth business in Asia

Janet Li joined Mercer on Tuesday in Hong Kong as Asia wealth business leader, a spokeswoman for the firm said Wednesday.

The position, heading up the firm's consulting activities for both retirement system scheme design and investments, is new. She will report to Lisa Sun, CEO of Mercer Hong Kong and Asia zone leader.

Ms. Li left her prior role as director of investments for Greater China with Willis Towers Watson at the end of October. A Willis Towers Watson spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment on a replacement.
