Mercer has elected UniSuper’s chief risk officer as its new chief risk and compliance officer of its Pacific business.
Ruby Yadav is set to commence in the role at the company’s Melbourne office in February.
Ms Yadav has previously held a range of risk and compliance roles across the consulting and financial services, including insurance, banking and superannuation.
Most recently, she has worked at UniSuper in senior risk and legal service roles from 2015.
Mercer Pacific chief executive Ben Walsh said Ms Yadav’s appointment was vital in strengthening the organisation’s commitment to best practice management of risk and compliance matters.
“Risk and compliance are critical business functions that we’ve invested in heavily over the years, and while it has always been a top priority, with the changing regulatory environment particularly for superannuation funds, it is more important than ever,” Mr Walsh said.
“Sound governance, a proactive approach to risk management and strong relationships with our regulators are among our bedrocks at Mercer.
“Ruby has a strong track record in risk management with a focus on accountability and efficiency. We are delighted that someone of Ruby’s caliber will be joining us to lead our strong risk and compliance team.”
