TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE QUARTERED 31 MARCH 2021

Continued net inflows and positive investment performance

Key points

-- Funds under management (FUM) of $127.0 billion at 31 March 2021 (31 December 2020: $123.6 billion)

o Net inflows of $0.6 billion

o Investment performance of $3.5 billion

o Negative FX and other impacts of $0.7 billion

   --      Strong balance sheet and liquidity position 

-- At 31 March 2021 we had completed $49 million of the $100 million share buyback announced in September 2020

Luke Ellis, Chief Executive Officer of Man Group, said:

"I am pleased we have delivered another quarter of growth, with FUM increasing by $3.4 billion to reach $127.0 billion. This reflects both investment gains for our clients and continuing net inflows and underscores the strength of our business model.

"Client engagement on a number of larger mandates has been positive this year, and as a result we expect to see increased inflows in the coming quarters. In the long term, it is our state-of-the-art technology and the strength of our client relationships combined with the quality of our people that define our firm and give me great confidence for the future."

FUM commentary for the quarter ended 31 March 2021

FUM increased by 3% to $127.0 billion in the first quarter. This was driven by net inflows of $0.6 billion primarily from our alternative strategies and positive investment performance of $3.5 billion largely from our long-only strategies. Negative FX and other movements of $0.7 billion resulted from a stronger US dollar particularly against the euro and the yen.

Alternative

Alternative FUM increased by $1.2 billion in the first quarter. Net inflows of $0.8 billion were driven by AHL TargetRisk and Man Institutional Solutions, partly offset by outflows from AHL Dimension. Positive investment performance of $0.7 billion was delivered across various strategies, including AHL Alpha (+2.6%) and Alternative Risk Premia (+1.1%).

Long-only

Long-only FUM increased by $2.2 billion in the first quarter supported by strong absolute performance. Net outflows of $0.2 billion were driven by Numeric US, partly offset by inflows into Numeric Global and GLG Japan CoreAlpha, our discretionary long-only Japan equity strategy. Positive investment performance of $2.8 billion was delivered across various strategies, including Numeric Global (+6.6%) and GLG Japan CoreAlpha (+25.1%). This was partly offset by negative absolute performance from GLG Continental European Growth (-6.5%).

*Estimated

1 Represented by AHL Alpha plc from 17 October 1995 to 30 September 2012, and by AHL Strategies PCC Limited: Class Y AHL Alpha USD Shares from 1 October 2012 to 30 September 2013. The representative product was changed at the end of September 2012 due to the provisioning of fund liquidation costs in October 2012 for AHL Alpha plc, which resulted in tracking error compared with other Alpha Programme funds. Both funds are valued weekly; however, for comparative purposes, statistics have been calculated using the best quality price that is available at each calendar month end, using estimates where a final price is unavailable. Where a price, either estimate or final is unavailable on a calendar month end, the price on the closest date prior to the calendar month end has been used. Both of the track records have been adjusted to reflect the fee structure of AHL Alpha (Cayman) Limited - USD Shares. From 30 September 2013, the actual performance of AHL Alpha (Cayman) Limited - USD Shares is displayed.

2 Represented by AHL Strategies PCC Limited: Class B AHL Dimension USD Shares from 3 July 2006 to 31 May 2014, and by AHL Dimension (Cayman) Ltd - F USD Shares Class from 1 June 2014 until 28 February 2015 when AHL Dimension (Cayman) Ltd - A USD Shares Class is used.
