The “exceptional portfolio manager” will spearhead the expansion of the firm’s Asia offering.
Andrew Swan will join Man GLG as head of Asia (ex-Japan) equities. He most recently served as head of Asia and global emerging market fundamental equities at BlackRock, prior to which he spent 17 years at JPMorgan in several Asia-Pacific equity portfolio management and research roles.
“We are very excited to welcome Andrew to the Man GLG team,” said CEO Teun Johnston.
“Andrew is very experienced and has demonstrated real skill in managing portfolios for his clients over a number of years. We feel that he will be a good fit both within Man GLG and the broader Man Group business.”
Mr Swan will initially be responsible for managing a concentrated long-only equity strategy, and will join the firm in mid-Q3. He will report directly to Mr Johnston.
“I am keen to return to focusing on investing for clients and Man GLG’s dual focus on autonomy and collaboration, coupled with Man Group’s reputation for having a culture of innovation and an exceptional technology platform, made this role a really compelling opportunity for me,” Mr Swan said.
“I look forward to working with Teun and the team to develop the new strategy and build out a new team.”
