Frontier Advisors taps Mercer veteran as a principal consultant

Elie Saikaly will join Frontier Advisors in June as a principal consultant, according to an announcement Thursday from the Melbourne, Australia-based investment consulting firm.

The position is new. He will be providing advice to a range of Frontier clients "at the investment committee/board level and working with those clients' internal investment teams," a spokeswoman for Frontier said in an email.

Mr. Saikaly will come to Frontier after a decade with Mercer in Melbourne, where he currently serves as a principal and investment consultant.

A Mercer spokeswoman couldn't immediately provide details regarding plans to fill Mr. Saikaly's role.
