Volatility is back: Better to target returns or target risk?
Man Solutions (Februar 2018)
How to keep risk on in the good markets without having too much risk on in the bad markets, and keeping that balance right? This is a central problem for most asset allocators and CIOs, and it is a particularly pressing question when valuations are high and policy is changing. In this paper we discuss an approach to asset allocation which is based on actively targeting risk rather than forecasting returns. While by no means original in concept, advances in technology have made the implementation of such an approach significantly more practical in our view. Our simulations show that by applying techniques used by alternative managers to long only portfolios, the risk/return characteristics of the overall portfolio can potentially be improved by more than 500 basis points.

Brace for impact: Why this may be just the tip of the iceberg for an EM correction
Man GLG (Februar 2018)
We think that Emerging Markets debt should still experience a meaningful correction. Here, we attempt to explain the three key reasons for this view, namely: valuations, fundamentals, and positioning.

Is Value dead (again)?
Man Numeric (September 2018)
Is value dead? We believe the answer is no. There are certainly scenarios where we feel value could regain its mojo: namely, a rising inflationary and interest-rate environment that might reduce the attractiveness of longer duration (i.e., growth) assets. But whether or not that occurs, we believe value investors need to do a better job appreciating and valuing growth. The evidence we present in this paper does not suggest a once-in-a-generation opportunity in value, nor does it suggest that value is entirely broken and it is time to retreat.
