Harvard Management alumnus Neil Mason has joined the Man Group as senior managing director and lead portfolio manager of Man GLG multi-strategy portfolios.

He will report to Man Group President Luke Ellis.

Mason was chief risk officer at Harvard Management, which oversees that university's $26 billion endowment. Prior to that he was CIO at FRM Capital Advisors, where he helped to establish its investment process and seeding activities, and before that CEO of BlueCrest Capital Management. Mason has also held senior roles at Bank of America and JP Morgan.

David Kingsley, portfolio manager on the multi-strategy portfolios, will continue in his current role and report to Mason. Kingsley will also continue to have input on asset allocation and strategy selection while focusing on the day-to-day portfolio risk and trading activities of the portfolios.

Said Ellis in a statement: "We believe Neil's appointment will enhance our expertise in managing GLG's multi-strategy portfolios. Neil will also work with me in overseeing the full range of investment strategies across the firm, with a focus on the discretionary strategies at GLG. We are very pleased to welcome him to Man, and David to GLG to continue his important role as portfolio manager."
