18th August 2015 - Fund Management company GLG has rebranded its range of 12 UK funds. As of today, the fund names will be changed from 'GLG' to 'Man GLG' to be more in keeping with its parent company, Man Group.
Investors in these funds will now see the new name displayed on statements, online and in literature, for example, GLG Japan CoreAlpha, which is on the Chelsea Selection, becomes Man GLG Japan CoreAlpha and GLG Strategic Bond, which is on the Chelsea Core Selection, becomes Man GLG Strategic Bond.
Commenting on the change, Richard Phillips, head of UK retail at Man Group, said: “Transitioning the funds to the Man GLG brand is a natural progression for the business and will bring our highly successful UK and Dublin ranges into line with the naming convention applied to Man Group’s other investment managers.
“Among other advantages, the rebrand will ensure complete consistency across the group and allow us to promote the funds in a way that best reflects the ownership of the business.”
