Man Investments has added a sophisticated portfolio illustration tool to its online service, following a substantial update of its website.
www.maninvestments.com also offers a host of other new services, such as a selection of the latest comments on industry trends by the Man investment analysis teams and a complete product listing with the latest price.
The portfolio illustration tool is an interactive tool, which compares the risk and returns achieved by a traditional portfolio composed of equities, bonds and cash, with those of an enhanced portfolio including alternative investments. The tool uses real data from financial indices and Man manager programmes for the period December 1990 to December 2003.
A new support tool deals with hedge funds. There is a guide to hedge funds entitled 'merits of hedge fund investing'. A whole series of articles dealing with hedge funds supplement the guide.
The registered users can request e-mail alerts of product price updates and monthly performance commentaries, compiled by the Man team.
A team of core investment managers who deal with various alternative asset classes, such as hedge funds, leveraged finance and convertible bonds, are just one click away from the homepage.
The site caters to institutions, professional advisors and intermediaries. It offers tailor-made alternative investment solutions to clients and works in conjunction with independent financial advisors.
The web site was a culmination of over six months of development.
