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.
We hold ourselves to the highest possible standards of performance so that we can deliver the best possible results for our clients.
Everything we do must be clear, honest, exposed to scrutiny and most important of all – reproducible. We strive constantly to improve and set standards in an atmosphere of transparency, teamwork and shared values.
Our teams have clear and sustainable investment processes, while demonstrating the character and confidence to deviate from consensus. We encourage creativity, innovation and unconventional thinking.
We have an open and collaborative culture and encourage active debate. We believe the performance of each individual team is improved when informed by the range of expertise across the business.
Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that diversity of thought has the power to enhance our culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing. We also know that people do their best work in an environment where they feel included, listened to and represented.
The quality of people here is outstanding and differentiates Man GLG from other companies.
Our business has always been defined by our entrepreneurial spirit and culture of excellence. We have built on this culture over the past 20 years, continuing to attract exceptional talent and broaden our range of expertise, whilst remaining focused on delivering superior performance to our clients.
We believe that our ability to recruit and develop the top talent in the industry is at the heart of our success. Our philosophy is to recruit exceptional people of all levels, and to ensure everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential. We look for people who are differentiated in their thinking and who, by challenging convictions, provide a collaborative yet independent approach to investing.
Our business has a long tradition of supporting communities and causes through charitable giving.
The Man Charitable Trust is a philanthropic trust funded by donations from Man Group which focuses its grant giving on literacy, numeracy and programmes that support disadvantaged people to engage with education and build the necessary life skills to improve life chances and employment prospects.
A key part of our culture at Man GLG is to encourage philanthropic activities across the team and the Trust provides access to charitable activities such as Give As You Earn (GAYE), Sponsorship Matching and Employee Community Volunteering. We also host fundraising events including our annual charity quiz night in support of charities such as The Royal Marsden Hospital, Pancreatic Cancer UK and Disability Africa.
