Man Global Private Markets. A global infrastructure for private markets asset classes.

About Man GPM

Man Global Private Markets ('Man GPM') was launched by Man Group in 2017, expanding the firm’s expertise beyond long-only and alternative investment strategies to less liquid asset classes.

 

 

Private market strategies are run in longer duration funds and managed accounts, which can provide a differentiated return profile for our clients. The addition of private markets strategies to our product range means that we can now work with clients across a wider range of strategies and offer a comprehensive suite of performance-focused investment options, all of which leverage Man Group’s global infrastructure and resources.

We believe that our investment culture, institutional framework and global infrastructure provide the optimal platform and environment for a diverse product offering that includes private markets strategies.

Man Real Estate Investors Strategy

Man Group's direct core and core plus real estate investment strategy aims to combine the benefits of a relatively conservative risk profile, which aims for stable income returns and long term capital appreciation.

The majority of investments are within the industrial, logistics, retail and office sectors, but more specialist fields such as student housing, leisure, storage and automotive are also considered.

The team is led by Stuart Webster, who has over 30 years' investment experience in real estate investing. Stuart's in-depth market knowledge and real estate background have allowed him to build a strong track record in sourcing attractive assets, and providing active management to enhance returns.
