Man’s quant arm launches China equity fund

Man’s quant arm launches China equity fund

Man Numeric, the quant arm of Man Group, has launched a Ucits compliant China equity fund to increase investor access to the growing A-shares market.

The fund, called Man Numeric China A Equity, is the sixth Ucits fund launched by the systematic investment specialist.

It is designed to tap into Man Numeric’s wider A-shares strategy, which was launched in 2018 but did not have any Ucits-compliant funds at the time. This launch is also part of plans to expand its overall emerging market equity coverage.

The strategy will be overseen by Citywire A-rated managers Ori Ben-Akiva and Mickael Nouvellon, who currently co-run the Man Numeric European Equity and Emerging Markets Equity funds.

The managers will adopt a long-only approach which will focus on bottom-up stock selection. It will have an investable universe of around 1,400 publicly-traded China A-shares securities.

Commenting on the launch, Ben-Akiva said the timing of the launch coincided with the growing importance of China A-shares in broad emerging market indices. This follows the acceleration of inclusion of A-shares into wider stock indices.
