- Fund management group Man reported an uptick in third-quarter funds under management thanks to 'robust' net inflows.

Funds under management stood at $113.1 billion at 30 September 2020, up from $108.3 billion seen in the June quarter.

Net inflows grew $1.7 billion to $72.4bn, Investment performance was up $1.7 billion and FX and other impacts were up $1.4 billion.

Positive investment performance was largely driven by its long-only strategies.

Growth in FuM was driven by 'robust net inflows into alternatives as anticipated, as well as performance gains across both alternative and long-only strategies,' the company said. 'Engagement with clients remains good, although there is increasing uncertainty due to upcoming political events and current Covid-19 trends.'
