About Man Numeric
Man Numeric employs systematic security-selection processes that are underpinned by a bottom-up, fundamental approach, offering both long only and alternative strategies. The team's highly experienced professionals operate collaboratively, distilling their analytical and investment expertise into systematic processes which are applied across regions, styles, and capitalizations.
Man Numeric has a strong history in public equities, focusing on bottom-up stock selection processes based on fundamental, causal market relationships and reinforced by continuous research. Its approach seeks to capitalize on temporary market inefficiencies, with models that look to identify mispricing opportunities.
Furthermore, the engine seeks to innovate continually and research new areas and opportunities. Man Numeric has significant capabilities in systematic responsible investing, with around half of its assets managed employing some form of sustainability screen.
Founded in 1989 and becoming part of Man Group in 2014, Man Numeric's funds under management were $34.8bn at 31 March 2019. Further information can be found at www.man.com/numeric.
