GLG to rebrand UK fund range


Fund manager GLG is rebranding its UK range in keeping with its parent company Man Group’s naming convention.

The 12-strong suite of funds will be renamed Man GLG on 18 August. For example, Rory Powe’s £183m GLG Continental Europe fund will become the Man GLG Continental European Growth fund, while the £1.6bn GLG Japan CoreAlpha will become Man GLG Japan CoreAlpha.

Man GLG’s Dublin-domiciled fund range will adopt the Man GLG prefix in September, subject to regulatory approval.

Man Group head of UK retail Richard Phillips says: “Transitioning the funds to the Man GLG brand is a natural progression for the business and will bring our highly successful UK and Dublin ranges into line with the naming convention applied to Man Group’s other investment managers.

“Among other advantages, the rebrand will ensure complete consistency across the group and allow us to promote the funds in a way that best reflects the ownership of the business.”
