Why Man GLG?
GLG was established in 1995 and has evolved over the past two decades to become a leading discretionary investment manager that offers a comprehensive range of alternative and long-only strategies. From the beginning, we have been defined by our entrepreneurial spirit and culture of excellence. We have built on this culture over the past 20 years, continuing to attract exceptional talent and broaden our range of expertise, whilst remaining focused on delivering superior performance to our clients.
We believe that our ability to recruit and develop the top talent in the industry is at the heart of our success. Our philosophy is to recruit exceptional people of all levels, and to ensure everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential. We look for people who are differentiated in their thinking and who, by challenging convictions, provide a collaborative yet independent approach to investing.
Opportunities for graduates
Man Group’s graduate programme is a unique opportunity to gain experience within a leading global alternative asset management business. Successful candidates will rotate through 3-4 placements within Investment Management and Sales over a two year period, including Man GLG.
Following a two day business induction, trainees start working immediately, so are very hands on from their first week. Man Group offers a mixture of formal and on the job training opportunities, and every trainee is assigned a mentor from the Executive Committee. Trainees will gain a thorough understanding of the business and having completed the programme will be well placed to develop a long term career at Man Group.
Applications for the graduate programme open in September. Please check the Man Group website for updates
