This article focuses on the business planning of Man Investments' unusual tack of having huge legal coverage. Man Investments has been in operation for more than two decades and in the past calendar year launched more than 100 new hedge fund products. In recent years, Man Group has embarked on a concerted effort to strengthen its senior management team and its corporate governance and compliance regime. To this end, Man Investments made a significant round of senior hires. Clifford Chance's co-head of private funds Stephen Ross was among the new recruits. The legal and compliance function works hand-in-hand with Man Investments' product structuring lawyers in selecting external advisers.
