Man GLG's market neutral ELS fund is a multi-manager fund (all internal managers) offering discreet, sector-specific for factor-specific strategies. Man GLG is embedding ESG data analytics via proprietary Dragon system which is display ESG factor risk alongisde other factors (ie, growth, momentum, value) and allow managers to decompose specific ESG risks and, in the future, run sensitivity simulations to solve for desired ESG outcomes and exposure.

Man Group elevated PRI signatory status to the group level in September 2017. Prior to that, Man GLG (GLG Partners) was a PRI signatory since 2012. Man Numeric (Numeric Investors) was a signatory since 2014. Both Man GLG and Man Numeric relinquished their PRi signatory status concurrent to Man Group elevating its signatory status. 

In first becoming a signatory in 2012, Man Group discussed with PRI and ultimately determined that the PRI's Six Principles were most relevant to its discretionary business, GLG Partners. Since then and culminating with the elevation of PRI signatory status at the Man Group level, Man determined that best practices and the ability better define which of the Six Principles were applicable made PRI more relevant to the group level.
