Global investment manager Man Group's AHL arm has added four new UCITS strategies to its product offerings.

The strategies are being run through Man AHL, the company’s quantitative investment division, according to media reports. They soft-launched at the end of 2014 and are UCITS domiciled in Dublin.

The Man AHL Multi Strategy Alternative fund, managed by Philipp Kauer, is a diversified multi-strategy product following systematic approaches such as technical trading, systematic equity, systematic fundamental, volatility, and momentum.

The long/short Man AHL Directional Equities Alternative fund, managed by Paul Chambers, uses a quantitative investment strategy to take directional positions in equity sectors in developed markets, targeting a return of 10% per annum.

The Man AHL Volatility Alternative fund, run by Jean-François Bacmann, is a long/short multi-asset volatility portfolio investing in derivative markets across a wide range of asset classes. 

The Man AHL TargetRisk fund, managed by Russell Korgaonkar and Che Hang Yiu, is a long-only fund investing in equities, bonds, inflation-linked assets and credit to deliver a stable level of return volatility, regardless of market conditions.

“We are delighted to expand our established quant trading offering with these UCITS funds,” said Sandy Rattray, CEO of Man AHL in a statement. “The strategies have been developed to meet specific investor needs, and showcase our strong research pipeline.

Originally founded in 1783, Man Plc is the world’s largest publicly traded hedge fund manager, with $72.9 billion in AUM at the end of last year.
