Responsibility. We conduct our business with the highest standards of integrity.

Our People

We aim to create an environment that enables our staff to reach their full potential. We seek to build a workplace that guarantees fairness and equal opportunities, while developing and retaining talent through continuing education and constructive feedback loops, flexible working policies and a comprehensive benefits scheme.

Our Community

As a firm, we are conscious of the impact of our organisation on the broader community, and have taken steps to ensure we are contributing positively to those around us. We achieve this primarily through our work with The Man Charitable Trust and our sponsorship of The Man Booker Prizes.

Our Environment

We look to take all practical methods to reduce energy consumption at our offices around the world. We monitor our environmental impact closely using Carbon 2018, a consultancy which helps us to identify areas for improvement.

Our Governance and Risk Management

We recognise the importance of robust corporate governance practices that help to ensure effective oversight and strong accountability. With our scale we are well positioned to seek to implement these behaviours across our investment engines.

Our Market Place

We believe in the importance of promoting integrity and transparency within the investment management sector. We actively support our industry in developing and committing to standards in this regard. In 2008 we were a founding signatory of the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB).

Responsible Investment

 

 

Man Group subscribes to the Principles for Responsible Investment ('PRI') definition: “Responsible investment is an approach to investing that aims to incorporate environmental, social and governance ('ESG') factors into investment decisions, to better manage risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns.”

Man Group has a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and we expect all those in our supply chain to comply with those values. Man Group will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
 

Diversity and Inclusion

At Man Group, we fundamentally believe in the importance of a diverse and meritocratic workplace. Our success is founded on talent, commitment, diligence and teamwork. By celebrating diversity, we encourage original and collaborative thinking, helping us deliver the best solutions for our clients.

Man Booker Prizes

Man Group sponsors two major literary prizes – The Man Booker Prize and The Man Booker International Prize. Sponsorship of the prizes underscores Man Group’s charitable focus on literacy and education as well as the firm’s commitment to excellence and creativity.

 

The Man Booker Prize

Launched in 1969, The Man Booker Prize aims to promote excellence in fiction by recognising the best full-length novel published in the English language each year. The Prize, which receives worldwide recognition, was expanded in 2014 to include entries from writers of all nationalities, writing originally in English and published in the UK.

2016 Winner

Paul Beatty won the 2016 Man Booker Prize with his novel The Sellout, becoming the first American to win the prize after the rules were changed in 2014 to admit US writers.

The Sellout is a searing satire on race relations in contemporary America. African-American narrator ‘Bonbon’, a resident of the run-down town of Dickens in Los Angeles county, is being tried in the Supreme Court for attempting to reinstitute slavery and segregation in the local high school as means of bringing about civic order. What follows is a retrospective of this whirlwind scheme, populated by cartoonish characters who serve to parody racial stereotypes.

The Man Booker International Prize

The Man Booker International Prize is awarded each year on the basis of a single book translated into English, and aims to encourage the publishing and reading of quality fiction in translation. The £50,000 prize is divided equally between the author and the translator.

 

2017 Winner

The 2017 Man Booker International Prize was awarded to the novel A Horse Walks Into a Bar, written by Israeli author David Grossman and translated by Jessica Cohen.

A Horse Walks Into a Bar unfolds over the course of one final show by stand-up comedian, Dovaleh Gee. Charming, erratic and repellent – Dovaleh exposes a wound he has been living with for years: a fateful and gruesome choice he had to make between the two people who were dearest to him. With themes that encompass betrayal between lovers, the treachery of friends, guilt and redress, A Horse Walks into a Bar is a shocking and breathtaking read.
