One of the longest running systematic managers that employs technology-empowered active investment management focused on delivering compelling returns in real world markets.
Man AHL is a team of researchers, developers and traders of systematic investment strategies.
The team applies scientific rigour and robust technology to diverse collections of data and hundreds of global markets. Through an innovative and collaborative culture, Man AHL aims to generate returns for clients across a range of diversified products.
Founded in 1987 as a Commodity Trading Advisor, Man Group initially took a majority stake in the business in 1989 and acquired the remaining share in 1994. From an initial focus on trend-following strategies, Man AHL has evolved into a multi-strategy quant business.
Man AHL brings a scientific, empirical mindset to investing. The team acts on evidence and strives to model and understand all aspects of the investment universe. As well as drawing on long-standing experience, it promotes innovation as well as unconventional and unconstrained thinking.
The firm’s investment programs are based on a long-standing philosophy that markets exhibit persistent anomalies, such as price trends, mean reversion, carry or other repeatable patterns, which can be identified through careful statistical analysis. Many of these inefficiencies result from behavioural biases, including risk aversion, anchoring and herding.
Man AHL incorporates responsible investment into its investment process and recognises its fiduciary role, one that aims to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns to its clients.Man AHL website
