Active investment manager Man Group has appointed Florida-headquartered The AMCS Group (AMCS) as its third-party distribution partner focused on the US offshore and Latin American wealth markets.
The appointment marks Man Group’s first partnership in the US offshore space, and complements the firm’s existing third-party distribution model, which it has employed in Latin America for over 20 years.
AMCS will work with Man Group’s internal sales team, including LatAm managing director Gadi Slamovitz, to deliver Man Group’s range of investment solutions to the US offshore market.
By leveraging AMCS’ distribution network with advisers at US banks and broker-dealers that service the US offshore market, the partnership will enable Man Group to expand its distribution network and reach a broader group of global investors.
Man Group and AMCS will focus efforts on the investment firm’s range of long only and alternatives Ucits funds.
Increase investor access
Steven Desmyter, global co-head of sales and marketing at Man Group, said: “We look forward to working with the AMCS Group to bring our diverse offering to an expanded US offshore and Latin American investor base.
“They are real specialists and we are confident the collaboration will help us provide investors in this important market segment with greater access to Man Group products.”
Chris Stapleton, co-founder and managing partner, the AMCS Group, said: “Man Group is a real innovator in the investment industry and it has a lot to offer the US offshore wealth market at a time when investors are thinking deeply about capital allocations, risk management and how to diversify portfolios.
“We look forward to partnering with them to increase investor access to their range of investment solutions.”
Headquartered in London, Man Group has 15 international offices and operates across multiple jurisdictions.
The AMCS Group was co-founded by Stapleton and Andres Munho in February 2018.
The firm specialises in building distribution networks within the US-offshore and Latin American wealth management market, and in raising assets into investment products.
