Evan Jacobs

Head of Liquid Product Legal & Head of Legal Operations at Man Group


Bio - Tell us a bit about yourself.: Evan is the Head of Liquid Product Legal & Head of Legal Operations at Man Group, with responsibility for the management and oversight of legal and regulatory matters related to the firm's range of liquid investment products. He also serves as co-chair of the Pride@Man network and is passionate about promoting LGBTQ+ diversity, equity and inclusion within Man Group and more broadly within the industry.

Before joining Man Group, Evan served as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Amber Capital. Prior to that, he held senior roles at BTG Pactual and at AllianceBernstein. Evan began his career at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in New York, within the Investment Management Group. He holds a J.D. and B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
Evan is committed to leveraging his professional skills to contribute to and promote LGBT+ diversity in the community. Evan was previously a member of the launch committee for UK Gaingels, a mission-based affinity organisation which leverages investment in companies that have at least one LGBT executive or founder, and, when he lived in New York, he did pro bono legal work for the Ali Forney Center, a charity supporting homeless LGBT youth.
Evan comments: "I am privileged to work for a company that is so dedicated to supporting diversity and inclusion and am proud to represent Man Group as a Project 1000 role model. It's not always easy for those of us who identify as LGBT+ to be open about who we are in the workplace, and I hope that serving as a role model can help promote an environment where others within the financial services industry feel empowered to bring their authentic selves to work, without fear of consequence."
