NEPC Hires Former Mercer Executive to Accelerate Business Development, OCIO Growth

February 1, 2021

Boston -- NEPC, LLC, one of the largest independent, research-driven investment consulting firms, today announced that former Mercer executive Troy Saharic has joined the firm as Principal and Director of New Business Development, effective February 1.

In this newly created role, Saharic is responsible for reviewing and enhancing NEPC’s new business processes, initially focusing on the firm’s OCIO business before expanding to support NEPC’s full sales process. Saharic will report to Steve Charlton, Partner and Director of Consulting Services.

“NEPC has seen increasing demand for our services and I’m confident Troy will help focus and refine our business development efforts to elevate our success,” said Charlton. “He’s not only an expert in strengthening business development processes, but he’s also a fantastic fit for NEPC’s collaborative culture. I’m confident that his positive influence and insights will be felt across our entire organization.”

Saharic brings a deep understanding of innovative business development strategies and the investment consulting industry. He spent the last 25 years of his career at Mercer, where he was most recently Senior Partner and Global Segment Leader responsible for driving growth of advisory and discretionary solutions for defined contribution plans and global master trusts. He spearheaded the firm’s OCIO business development group as the North American Investment Director and served as the firm’s Western Region Business Leader.

“From desired governance models to diverse financial objectives, every client has unique needs. However, they all have this in common: they want to partner with professionals they can trust,” said Saharic. “At NEPC, my goal is to develop a comprehensive process that allows us to better understand these unique client needs so we can combine the right talent and services, and ultimately grow our relationships.”

This is a strategic new hire for NEPC as the OCIO business is expected to be a key driver of the firm’s growth. Currently, NEPC’s OCIO team is responsible for over $45 billion in assets across 80 clients and 175 investment programs.


NEPC is an independent investment consultant and private wealth advisor, serving 391 retainer clients and $1.1 trillion in total assets. Combining a proprietary research team dedicated to the long-term challenges facing investors with our unique client-centric model, NEPC builds forward-looking investment portfolios for institutions and high net worth investors.
