Adeline Tan, Wealth Business Leader, Mercer Hong Kong
As one of the senior female leaders at Mercer, Adeline Tan brings an empathetic touch to the world of pensions and investments in her role with the Wealth Team of Hong Kong. Having built a cross-continental career, from the UK to Hong Kong, she left the UK after 12 years in consulting to lead the investment advisory team at Mercer in Hong Kong. In three years’ time under her leadership, the wealth team has grown to be recognized as the leading wealth advisory firm in Hong Kong.
Adeline leads a team of analytical minds to interrogate financial data to create value for clients. She makes the most of her education and experience to guide her team by studying the small details, so that they can reveal what the data represents to their clients. Her team is currently working on ESG (environmental, social and governance) factors around climate change: mining the wealth of data at their disposal and considering mitigating factors, and then exploring how these insights can add value to their clients’ businesses.
At Mercer, she thrives on seeing the bigger picture, yet driving her team to understand the critical nature of the little details that can turn something on its head. She believes that paying attention to the little things can bring more benefits in terms of saving time, effort and even dollars, than purely looking at big things.
