Investment consulting is different than strategy / management consulting. It’s usually providing investment advisory for institutions (endowment & foundations, pensions, family offices). You evaluate fund managers and tell clients which funds you think are best to invest in. Haven’t interviewed at Mercer before but would just Google / prep for questions like how you would choose a fund for a portfolio.
