Manny Roman, Chief Executive Officer of Man, said:

“Against a backdrop of challenging market conditions, 2015 was another year of good progress for Man Group. We have delivered against our strategic objectives, continuing to enhance our investment capabilities through the successful integration of three acquisitions that completed in the first half of the year and the appointment of some high calibre investment managers to the firm. FUM increased by 8% driven by acquisitions and flows were slightly positive in the year with net inflows of $2.9 billion in the second half.

Looking forward, the on-going volatility in the markets in which we operate remains very challenging and, accordingly, the risk appetite of our clients might impact flows. However, we now have a more diversified offering and a range of attractive options for growth, which have strengthened the firm and enhanced our resilience as a business.”
