We are active managers with a clear mission: to generate superior investment performance for our clients.
We strive to accomplish this by hiring and nurturing seasoned talent and providing a platform which we believe empowers them to succeed.
Across our long-only and alternative product offering, which spans asset classes, regions and sectors, our teams employ a diverse range of strategies and styles.
Our portfolio managers are unconstrained by a house view and encouraged to think independently. We want our teams to express their views, to act decisively on ideas or opportunities and take prudent risks.
Our business was built on the principles of judicious security selection and that remains the core of our overarching philosophy. We believe that the best way to exploit market inefficiencies and unlock alpha is through a high-conviction approach to investing, underpinned by rigorous analytical techniques and a robust risk management discipline.
Exceptional people are the lifeblood of our business. We focus on attracting the best investment talent, striving for a unique mix of people with can-do attitudes, curiosity and a collaborative spirit.
Our portfolio management team represents a depth of expertise across key sectors and regions. Teams operate in an eco-system of autonomous collaboration, where teamwork, idea-sharing and debate are encouraged.
There are three common attributes that we look for in a portfolio manager:
- What we feel is a clear, persistent investment edge
- Process discipline and conviction in approach
- An ability to assume risk in a controlled manner
We work with each of our teams to develop, refine and enhance their investment approaches so that they can fully realise their potential.
We also provide our managers with significant analytical support and look to develop the next generation of investment talent through our Analyst Development Programme that allows analysts to learn from senior talent and provides a path to become a Portfolio Manager over a 3-5 year time horizon.
We offer a diverse range of alternative and long-only investment strategies across equities, credit, fixed income and multi-asset approaches.
The business was originally founded as an equity manager and today our equities capability continues to represent a key component of our offering.
Our absolute return equity strategies offer the potential for positive performance combined with downside limitation and low correlation to traditionally managed assets, while our long-only equity strategies aim to deliver above index performance by employing active investment philosophies that focus on alpha capture.

We have one of the most comprehensive credit offerings in the alternative investment space and over two decades of credit management expertise. We offer a broad range of absolute return and long-only credit strategies that span the credit spectrum and capital structure.
These funds benefit from a disciplined approach to investing, strong risk management and an experienced and specialist team of dedicated credit managers and analysts situated around the globe.

We believe that empowering our investment teams with advanced quantitative processes and technology can enhance their ability to generate alpha for clients and ultimately enables them to do their best work.
We strive to improve the quality of investment decision making by providing our PMs with better information, faster and more efficiently than peers. We aim to do this through a number of initiatives:
Focusing on alpha generation
We are constantly researching ways to use our quantitative and technology resources to generate alpha opportunities. One key area of focus is the use of alternative data as a research tool.
Robust portfolio management toolkits
We have developed a number of ways for our PMs to improve their information edge by utilising tools and systems that help them manage the immense amount of data they need to process in an efficient way.
Being a part of Man Group means that our teams have access to a long history of innovation in technology and quantitative methods, and we will continue to leverage that expertise with the intent of delivering the best results for our clients.

As stewards of capital, we believe that we have a responsibility to our clients to have an active awareness of the risks and opportunities posed by environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) issues. We believe this is an integral part of the risk management process, and can help us to generate alpha.
Across our diverse product range, we support each of our portfolio managers to implement an approach to Responsible Investment (‘RI’) that is suitable and effective to their individual strategies. Our overarching approach aims to be:
Our teams have access to a proprietary ESG data toolkit which enables them to evaluate a wide variety of company-specific ESG metrics.
We encourage our portfolio managers to meet with company management teams and advocate for practices that will drive sustainable value over the long term.
We believe that RI demands transparency and consistency. Man Group’s RI Fund Framework is designed to establish a baseline requirement of standards and to provide credibility, clarity and consistency across our range of funds.
We offer a number of strategies with a formalised approach to RI, spanning a variety of asset classes. We also offer two dedicated RI strategies which operate under fully ESG-integrated strategies.
