Boston-based quant group bulks up Ucits efforts

Boston-based quant group bulks up Ucits efforts

Man Group’s quant arm, Man Numeric, has accelerated its push into the Ucits market with a new launch targeting European equities.

The Man Numeric European Equity fund would mark the fifth Dublin-domiciled Ucits fund launched by the Boston-based unit, which oversees $30.1 billion in assets.

This new approach will provide access to the Man Numeric European Core strategy and aim to outperform the MSCI Europe Index. This is through a combination of quant and bottom-up stock selection.

Portfolio managers Greg Bunimovich, Ori Ben-Akiva and Mickael Nouvellon will use a combination of proprietary valuation and information flow models to select stocks.

The disciplined portfolio construction process is designed to capture alpha while managing sector, country and stock-specific risks.

Man Group acquired Numeric Investors in September 2014 and has grown assets from $14.7 billion to $30.1 billion as of 30 September 2017.

Together with Man AHL, Man Numeric forms part of Man Group’s diversified, global quantitative investment platform which offers clients a broad product range across alternative and long-only, trend following and technical strategies.
