Man Group, the active investment management firm, announced the appointment of the AMCS Group (“AMCS”) as its third-party distribution partner focused on the US offshore and Latin American wealth markets.
“The appointment, which follows a robust selection and due diligence process, marks Man Group’s first partnership in the US offshore space, and complements the firm’s existing and well-established third-party distribution model, which it has employed in Latin America for over 20 years”, stated Man Group in a press release.
AMCS will work together with Man Group’s internal sales team, including Gadi Slamovitz, Managing Director for Latin America, to deliver Man Group’s range of investment solutions to the US offshore market. “By leveraging AMCS’ deep distribution network with advisors at US banks and broker dealers that service the US offshore market, the partnership will enable Man Group to expand its distribution network and reach a broader group of global investors”, added the firm.
Man Group and AMCS will focus efforts on Man Group’s diverse range of long only and alternatives UCITS funds, managed on both a systematic and discretionary basis by Man Group’s individual investment engines, including the Man AHL TargetRisk strategy, which is a risk-balanced, multi-asset strategy that applies Man AHL’s advanced systematic techniques to a long only portfolio.
Steven Desmyter, Global Co-Head of Sales and Marketing at Man Group said that they’re looking forward to working with the AMCS Group to bring their “diverse offering” to an expanded US offshore and Latin American investor base. “Chris (Stapleton) and Andres (Munho) are industry veterans with deep knowledge of the offshore market and a thorough understanding of our products and investment solutions and we have already developed a strong working relationship with the team”.
“They are real specialists and we are confident the collaboration, managed by Gadi, will help us provide investors in this important market segment with greater access to Man Group products”, he added.
Meanwhile, Chris Stapleton, co-founder and managing partner of the AMCS Group, stated that Man Group is “a real innovator” in the investment industry and it has a lot to offer the US offshore wealth market at a time when investors are thinking deeply about capital allocations, risk management and how to diversify portfolios. “We look forward to partnering with them to increase investor access to their range of investment solutions”, he said.
