Why Man Group is supporting the Big Innovation Centre
"Founded in 1783, Man started life as a barrel maker, reinvented itself as a rum trader, evolved into a commodities broker and became ultimately the business it is today – the world’s largest publicly-traded alternative investment manager. Throughout this long history Man has innovated in order to stay close to its customers. Man formed an alliance with Oxford University in 2007 creating the Oxford Man Institute, a world-leading quantitative finance research facility.
This centre has brought researchers and practitioners together to explore new areas of research and develop creative solutions to real business challenges. It is in this spirit that we support the Big Innovation Centre in its work to create a global innovation hub."
