Started in the USA in 1937 as the employee benefits department of Marsh & McLennan, Inc., the company took the name of “William M. Mercer” in 1959, when Marsh & McLennan acquired William M. Mercer Limited, a Canadian firm founded by William Manson Mercer in 1945. In 1975, Mercer became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. In 2002, they changed their corporate name to Mercer Human Resource Consulting. The company became Mercer in 2007. Mercer has grown significantly in size and service capabilities through careful recruiting efforts and a series of mergers with other top-quality firms. Mercer has operated in Ireland since 1971 and with 600 employees based in Dublin, Cork and Limerick, is one of the largest pension, inverstment and employee benefits consulting firms.
Set up in 2006, Probability Dynamics is a quantitative investment management research company which uses applied mathematics, computational modelling, and behavioural finance methodology to identify trends in global financial markets. Probability Dynamics is founded on the premise that financial markets are, in reality, complex adaptive systems exhibiting behaviour which can oscillate between calm and chaotic, efficient and inefficient. To further this understanding, the company has a strong interdisciplinary research component in chaos theory, complexity theory, and signal processing techniques.
The Institute Bankers in Ireland was founded in 1898 and came into existence with just 719 members. The first President of the Institute was Charles Martin who was - at the same time - governor of the Bank of Ireland. From the very beginning, the Institute was dedicated to the professional development of its members - initiating formal examinations held each May - which resulted in the award of the Certificate of the Institute. Following the establishment of a cycle of lectures on banking issues, the Institute went on to found a quarterly journal in 1899 - the Journal of the Institute of Bankers in Ireland - which remains in existence as Banking Ireland. Currently, the Institute has in excess of 35,000 individual members and 50 corporate members.
