Manny Roman (pictured), Chief Executive Officer of Man, says: “Against the backdrop of challenging market conditions for the global investment management industry, we have delivered results for the first three months of the year that demonstrate the value and benefits of a diversified business model. Investment performance across our quantitative strategies and net inflows meant that group funds under management remained stable over a highly volatile quarter.
“The ongoing uncertainty in the markets remains challenging and, accordingly, the risk appetite of our clients has the potential to impact flows. However, the ongoing diversification of our business has enhanced our resilience as a firm, and positions us well to navigate the current economic climate. As we have previously indicated, we continue to explore new options for growth, both organically and by acquisition, within our disciplined financial framework.”
