Man was founded in 1783 as a Thames-side barrel maker in London. Over the course of two centuries and more, the company has evolved into an industry leading alternative investment provider.
Man has constantly evolved and reinvented itself, setting the agenda as a leader and spotting new opportunities and markets as a company of innovators. This has required the company to expand across a broad range of geographies and hedge fund styles to meet the expectations and aspirations of its investors, its people and its shareholders.
With offices in sixteen countries and through our ownership of investment managers in the UK, Switzerland and America, we have become a truly global operation.
The strength of the organisation is epitomised by its active engagement to promote industry self-regulation in addition to complying with the robust capital and governance structures expected of a FTSE 250 company. As such, Man is a founding member of the Hedge Fund Standards Board and has recently signed to comply with Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) backed by the UNO.
With over 230 years of solid trading experience and more than 25 years of hedge fund success, we provide the reassurance of longevity that clients are looking for in a rapidly changing financial world.
Man Group is one of the world’s largest independent alternative investment managers and a leader in liquid, high-alpha investment strategies. With their clients’ needs at our core, they offer a comprehensive suite of absolute return and long-only funds through their performance-driven investment engines. They believe that the key to extracting repeatable alpha from capital markets is to provide an institutional framework for their entrepreneurial asset managers to operate in, allowing them to focus solely on alpha generation and research.
Man Group’s investment managers have expertise in a diverse range of strategies which offer investment returns matched to investor appetite for risk and reward. They aim to generate superior risk-adjusted returns for their clients through the quality of their research, the talent of their investment managers and the strength of their operations and risk infrastructures.
