Man Group, the world’s largest publicly traded hedge fund, indicated that for the first half of fiscal 2007 ended Sept. 30, earnings should rise more than 10% driven by a 15% spike in management fees due to strong sales.

Furthermore, the current market environment creates opportunities for investment.”
