Headquartered in London, the firm has 15 international offices and operates across 25 jurisdictions. Our business has five specialist investment engines, which represent the range of our capabilities: Man AHL, Man Numeric, Man GLG, Man FRM and Man GPM.

These engines house numerous investment teams, working collaboratively within the framework of Man Group, with a high degree of investment autonomy. Each team benefits from the strength and resources of the firm's single operating platform, enabling their primary focus to be seeking to generate alpha for clients. The teams invest across a diverse range of strategies and asset classes with highly specialised approaches, with long only and alternative strategies run on a discretionary and quantitative basis in single and multi-manager formats. Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and we engage in close dialogue with our investors as strategic partners, to understand their particular needs and constraints. Man Group's investment teams are empowered and supported by our institutional infrastructure and technology, which aims to facilitate the most efficient exposure to markets and effective collaboration across the organisation.

Through the Man Charitable Trust and sponsorship of the Man Booker Prizes, Man Group is committed to promoting literacy and numeracy on a global scale, and to supporting charitable causes more broadly.

About Man GLG

Man GLG is a discretionary investment engine, offering a diverse range of alternative and long-only investment strategies across equities, credit, fixed income and multi-asset approaches. Man GLG's investment teams are encouraged to think independently, while sharing and debating ideas, unconstrained by a house view. The engine seeks to nurture and recruit talented investors with rigorous, repeatable investment processes and a history of creating value for clients. They are supported by Man Group's robust infrastructure, as well as advanced technology and deep fundamental research to ensure that fund managers can focus on seeking to generate attractive risk-adjusted performance for clients.

As a discretionary investment engine, Man GLG also employs the latest quantitative techniques and technology as part of its fundamental investment and efficient execution processes, leveraging Man Group's broader expertise. Man GLG collaborates with the other engines across Man Group, as well as conducting its own proprietary research. A dedicated machine learning team has recently been appointed at Man GLG, as part of its continuing effort to further enhance discretionary investment through the incorporation of quantitative techniques.

Founded in 1995 and becoming part of Man Group in 2010, Man GLG's funds under management were $38.0bn at 31 March 2018. Further information can be found at
