Increasingly, our clients are coming to us with complex needs, and we have the ability to add greater value by bringing the diverse capabilities and solutions across our business together.

"In these newly-created roles, Helen and Saranne will oversee and drive our capabilities in sales, commercial acceleration, and strategy, so that we can better deliver a holistic offering to our clients and drive growth for the business, and for the benefit of our clients," he said.

In her new role, Murdoch will be responsible for the business' growth agenda. She previously spent seven years with Mercer as a partner and head of products and solutions management. She's also held roles with Russell Investments and Sovereign Investment Research.
