Man has launched Man IP 220 GLG Ltd, a product that offers investors access to a combination of Man’s flagship managed futures manager AHL and a broad range of GLG’s discretionary strategies for the first time. The product is the latest addition to Man’s highly successful IP 220 range, the first of which was launched in 1996.
Man IP 220 GLG Ltd invests in both the AHL Diversified Programme and the GLG Global Opportunity Portfolio, a global multi-strategy portfolio invested across a broad range of GLG’s discretionary strategies. This blend of GLG and AHL brings together two investment managers with strong, long term track records and a historically low correlation to each other.
Christoph Möller (picture), Global Head of Distribution and Institutional Relationship Management at Man, says: “Following Man’s landmark acquisition of GLG in October 2010, this is the first product which draws on the new Group’s combined investment talent. Man IP 220 GLG Ltd has been designed using strategies which perform independently from each other with the aim of generating strong returns across a variety of market conditions, providing investors with a valuable portfolio diversification tool.”
