Man GLG appoints three portfolio managers in London and Hong Kong

Thursday, January 17, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Man GLG, the discretionary investment management business of Man Group, is pleased to announce the appointment of three portfolio managers within its long-short equity team - Nick Longcroft, Matteo De Paulis, and Julien Sallmard. Nick will be based in Hong Kong and focus on technology, media and telecoms. Matteo and Julien will be based in London and focus on holding company arbitrage and European consumer, respectively. They will each report to Neil Mason, head of European long-short equity at Man GLG.

Nick joins Man GLG from Nezu Asia Capital Management, where he was the lead portfolio manager on the Nezu Technology Media and Telecoms (TMT) strategy, a fundamental equity long-short strategy focused on the pan-Asian TMT universe. At Nezu, he was also responsible for trading from 2004-2015. Prior to this, Nick spent two years in JPMorgan's Asia Pacific hedge fund sales trading team and three years in the global products equity sales trading team at Goldman Sachs. Nick has more than 20 years of experience working in equity markets and 15 years of experience across pan-Asian TMT research and portfolio management.

Matteo joins Man GLG from BTG Pactual, where he was a portfolio manager within the flagship fund running a market-neutral strategy focused mainly on holding company, share class and stub trades on a global basis. Prior to this, Matteo worked on similar strategies at Mariner Investment and Concordia Advisors. He has more than 11 years of investment management experience in equity relative value strategies.

Julien re-joins Man GLG in London, having previously worked as a portfolio manager at Man GLG from 2014 to 2016. In the interim period, Julien was a portfolio manager at Balyasny Asset Management where he ran a European consumer strategy. Julien has more than 14 years of experience in investment management, including portfolio management roles at Invus, where he established and led the European public equity business, and at JPMorgan, where he ran a consumer long-short equity strategy within their proprietary trading business.

Neil Mason, head of European long-short equity at Man GLG, said:

"We are pleased to welcome Nick, Matteo and Julien to the team, and I look forward to working with them in their new portfolio manager roles. We are continuously seeking to enhance our multi-manager long-short equity platform in a way that delivers value for our clients, and each of these individuals bring a distinct set of skills and more than a decade of relevant portfolio management experience."
