Climate Capabilities at Man Group

Climate change is rapidly transforming the world as we know it. As an asset manager, we believe we have an important role to play in creating a better and more sustainable future for investors and society.

We believe our quantitative heritage and data-driven culture puts us in a unique position to assist our clients in reducing the systemic risk of climate change whilst identifying opportunities in the transition towards a low carbon economy.

We provide intelligent climate solutions by combining fundamental research with a rigorous, data-driven approach to climate integration, whilst also leveraging climate expertise from across the firm.

UK Stewardship Code

 

Man Group is a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code 2020. However, our signatory status in relation to 2021 is subject to approval of this report by the FRC.

 

 

Stewardship

As a proud signatory of the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, Man Group views environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) analysis as a fundamental part of investment risk management.

 

At Man Group we take our stewardship responsibilities seriously. Our stewardship activity is guided by our commitment to the UK Stewardship Code and our Responsible Investment Engagement Framework sets our approach to shareholder engagement and proxy voting.

Our approach to stewardship extends across three distinct dimensions:

Firm-level Engagement
Firm-level engagement through application of an ESG flavoured Framework Voting policy and by carrying out rigorous engagement work with investee companies.

 

Collaborative Engagement
Collaborative engagement with leading organisations. We define engagement as constructive and pruposeful dialogue with companies on material risks tied to ESG issues.

 

Fund-level Engagement
Fund-Level portfolio manager led engagement with portfolio company management.

 

We support the Say on Climate initiative
