I look forward to continuing to add value to the business, particularly regarding strategic investment decisions on the part of Man Investments’ main investment units.”
Peter Clarke said: “I am excited to have the opportunity to lead the Group’s continued development. Man has established leading positions in both its businesses and has an enormous pool of talent across the Group, led by Kevin Davis at Man Financial and John Morrison at Man Investments. Stanley and I have worked together at Man for 13 years and I am very pleased that we retain his valuable contribution to the Group in the years ahead.”
