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.

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.

2018 Winner

Anna Burns won the 2018 Man Booker Prize for her third full-length novel, Milkman, becoming the first Northern Irish author to win the prize and the 17th woman to claim the prize since it began in 1969. Milkman is Burns’ third full-length novel and follows her first two novels No Bones and Little Constructions, and the novella, Mostly Hero.

Set in an unnamed city during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, Milkman focuses on the middle sister, as she navigates her way through rumour, social pressures and politics in a tight-knit community. Drawing on her own experiences, Burns portrays a world that allows individuals to abuse the power granted by a community to those who resist the state on their behalf. Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is a story of inaction with enormous consequences, through which Burns shows the dangerous and complex outcome that can happen to a woman coming of age in a city at war.

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.

 

2018 Winner

The 2018 Man Booker International Prize was awarded to the novel Flights, written by Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and translated by Jennifer Croft. Olga Tokarczuk is a multiple award winner and bestseller in Poland whose work is now gaining recognition in the English-speaking world.

Flights is a novel of linked fragments, from the 17th century to the present day, connected by themes of travel and human anatomy. Through these narratives, interspersed with short bursts of analysis and digressions on topics ranging from travel-sized cosmetics to the Maori, Flights guides the reader beyond the surface layer of modernity and towards the core of the very nature of humankind.

The Man Charitable Trust (The Trust) is an independent UK registered charity, founded in 1978, which creates opportunities for positive change by giving grants to charitable organisations that promote literacy and numeracy in the UK.

Our aims and activities are two-fold: firstly to support organisations that raise levels of literacy and numeracy in the UK and secondly, to provide opportunities for Man Group UK employees to invest their time and expertise in charitable activities. We achieve this through the following four activities:

  • Providing grants via a two stage application process, or through negotiated partnerships with selected charities
  • Tracking success by measuring impact, carefully monitoring all grants to ensure progress against agreed objectives
  • Providing volunteering opportunities to Man Group UK employees via the Trust’s community volunteering programme, ManKind
  • Supporting Man Group UK employees fundraising activity and charitable donations via the Trust’s Sponsorship Matching and Give As You Earn schemes

The Trustees, drawn from across Man Group’s business, are Teun Johnston (Chairman), Colin Bettison, Lydia Bosworth, Antoine Forterre, Keith Haydon, Carol Ward, Steven Desmyter and Robyn Grew.
