Mercer Wealth Solutions teaches investors about new super changes through educational podcasts.

Increased demand for education about the Government's better super changes has prompted Mercer Wealth Solutions to add a superannuation podcast to its website.

Mercer Wealth Solutions member services leader in Australia Anthony Schiavo said the inclusion of the podcast is in response to a massive increase in demand for online, helpline, education and financial advisory services, following the Federal Government's better super changes.
Both the number of Mercer Super Trust online visitors and webinar (online seminar) sessions have jumped more than 50 per cent, he said.

"Growth in members using online interactive tools has really skyrocketed over the past year," Schiavo said. 

Earlier this year Mercer Wealth Solutions helpline services managed an average of 1,252 calls per day, which was an increase of 33.5 per cent on April 2006. 

In May this year, the average daily call volume grew to 1,672, a 35 per cent increase on the previous month. 

The podcasts are available to Mercer Wealth Solutions' 20,000 private clients, 200,000 Mercer Super Trust members and the public.
