Investors are now able to gain access to managed futures, equity, credit, emerging markets, global macro, across single manager funds, managed accounts, multi-manager portfolios and structured products, all managed by Man’s highly experienced and talented investment professionals. This builds on our commitment to providing investors with strong risk-adjusted performance that can add diversification benefits to an investment portfolio.”
