Responsible Investment at Man Group:Innovation. Rigour. Returns.
At Man Group, we recognise that Responsible Investment ('RI') is fundamental to our fiduciary duty to our clients and beneficiaries. We understand the importance of sound stewardship in managing investors’ capital, and our approach to RI ensures that our interests and values are closely aligned to those of our clients and shareholders.
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.
As stewards of our clients’ capital, we owe it to them to actively and responsibly manage their entrusted resources to unlock long-term and sustained value.
Man Group fully supports the UK Stewardship Code, applying its seven principles across the firm’s investment strategies. Our Stewardship and Active Ownership team maintains the firm’s stewardship polices and framework that guide all our stewardship activities to uphold the highest standards in ESG.
At Man Group we take our stewardship responsibilities seriously. Our stewardship activity is guided by our commitment to the UK Stewardship Code and our Engagement Policy sets our approach to shareholder engagement and proxy voting.
Man Group’s Stewardship and Active Ownership team oversees all proxy voting activity at the firm level. We have developed an enhanced ESG proxy voting policy that goes beyond your typical policy by applying specific overlays that represent the core principle of good governance.
Man Group is an active advocate of Responsible Investment in the investment community, and we are proud to be involved with a number of organisations and iniatives, including:
As a responsible investor, Man Group complements its stewardship activity by carrying out rigorous engagement work with investee companies. We define engagement as a constructive and purposeful dialogue with companies on material risks tied to ESG issues – a targeted and focused discussion with a clear agenda and defined objectives.
