No. While you can access Mercer Invest Wise™, powered by Wealthsimple through your employer, it is separate from your employer retirement plan. Mercer Invest Wise is an additional voluntary savings and retirement plan to complement your total benefits package. Mercer Invest Wise can be used for all types of savings goals. It can be used for saving for a down payment on a home, for educational needs, to drawdown your pension post retirement, or to complement your employer’s retirement plan as needed.
Absolutely! Mercer Invest Wise has investment options appropriate for a wide range of individuals, including those who are approaching or in retirement. After completing a questionnaire, you will be recommended a portfolio tailored to your personal financial situation. In general, those approaching or in retirement would be recommended a more conservative portfolio, which is designed to have lower short-term fluctuations than say, a growth portfolio.
Yes of course. You can continue to use your Mercer Invest Wise account even if you leave your current employer. Even better, you can continue to open new accounts too. So if upon leaving your employer, you wish to transfer your retirement savings into your Mercer Invest Wise account, you can do so.
There are three investment portfolios offered within Mercer Invest Wise. Conservative, for those of you who want to invest a little more cautiously, through to growth, for those who want a little more octane in their investments. We'll help you choose a risk level you're comfortable with, and help you switch between portfolios over time if your circumstances change.
Mercer Invest Wise is not linked to your payroll, but you can easily transfer monies from your bank account or other financial institutions at a click of a button. Just run through the application process to see how.
