Luke Ellis, Chief Executive Officer of Man, said:

"Funds under management were slightly up in the quarter with net inflows of $0.4 billion, despite the previously announced $2.2 billion infrastructure mandate redemption. Positive investment movements offset negative FX and other movements. We saw continuing inflows into our alternative risk premia strategies and strong flows into our systematic equity strategies. Investment performance in the quarter was mixed with strong absolute and relative performance in our momentum and discretionary long only strategies but weaker relative performance in our discretionary alternative and systematic equity strategies.

Looking forward, Man Group is well positioned, with strong fundamentals, and we remain focused on enhancing our technology platform and continuing to develop innovative strategies for our clients."
