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.

A bit sad as I’ve been having a very tough first year here and headed down to the wrong path. Job is tough, so it’s expected, but I felt like I never had any actual support. Never worked with a manager that provided guidance or proper feedback and somehow that came back to bite me in the rear. I’m leaving soon and wonder if I should try MB/consulting again or get out. Anyone willing to chat through some experience and perhaps provide referral?
