Man GLG boosts machine learning

Man GLG, a part of hedge fund company Man Group, has appointed William Ferreira as head of machine learning.

The newly created role will see Ferreira ensuring that portfolio managers have tools and techniques to interpret data created by news analysis, social media, market events and announcements, and to visualise complex data.

He will collaborate with Man AHL’s machine learning team. Man AHL has been actively researching machine learning techniques and applying them within its client trading programmes for several years, Man Group said.

The firm collaborates with the University of Oxford. The Oxford-Man Institute was established in 2007 to focus on “cutting-edge research” into machine learning techniques and data analytics.

William joins Man GLG from Florin Court Capital, and prior to that worked as Technology Manager for Man AHL from 2011 to 2014. In his role at Man AHL, William acted as Chief Technology Officer for Man Systematic Strategies.
