Man Group to axe up to 200 jobs next year

first_img MAN Group will axe up to 200 jobs over the next year, according to sources close to the firm.The world’s largest listed hedge fund has already identified $50m (£32m) of cost savings and a company spokesman told City A.M. it was inevitable some of this would be achieved by reducing headcount.However, he declined to confirm how many jobs could be lost through the streamlining operation.City sources say at least 100 full time staff are likely to lose their jobs, with other losses coming through cutting back on the number of contractors working for the firm.The total will come to around 10 per cent of Man Group’s 1,800 headcount. The reductions will be phased over the next six months, according to sources close to the firm. More information is expected to be released when the group releases its results next Thursday.Man Group remains a potential bid target, with Bank of New York Mellon seen as a possible suitor. Its funds under management have fallen from $79.5bn in 2008 to just $39bn in March.Last month it also clocked up an eighth consecutive quarter of net withdrawals, as an improved performance from its flagship AHL fund failed to stem the outflow of private client money. It recorded net outflows of $600m in the three months to the end of September, though the rate of withdrawals slowed from the first quarter.

FanDuel outlines sports betting plans in US

first_img FanDuel outlines sports betting plans in US DFS Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 9th May 2018 | By contenteditor FanDuel has revealed its intentions to expand into sports betting should the US Supreme Court overturn the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovation DFS AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: US FanDuel has revealed its intentions to expand into sports betting should the US Supreme Court overturn the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Nevada is currently the only state in which punters can legally wager on sports in the US, with PASPA blocking other states from offering regulated services. However, New Jersey is heading up an effort to overturn PASPA and should the Supreme Court rule in favour of the bid, this could open up the market to more states. Matt King, chief executive of daily fantasy sports (DFS) firm FanDuel, told Forbes that should New Jersey succeed in its effort, the company would look to launch its own sports betting service. Rival DFS operator DraftKings has already started work on preparing its own sports betting offering in the US by speaking with casinos in New Jersey about possible partnerships. “[A Supreme Court overturn] would mean we would get into sports betting,” King said. “This business is around fan engagement and helping fans feel closer to the things they like, and clearly sports betting is one way to help people to do that. “So it would be very logical for us to get into it; we have some ideas of how to make that experience better and ones that we feel will resonate with our users. “We think we’re uniquely positioned to fulfil that market demand.”Related articles: DraftKings eyes NJ casino partners for sports betting US sports betting ‘enormous’ opportunity – DraftKings CEO Tags: Fantasy Sports Email Addresslast_img read more
