MAN Group Challenge

Welcome to the Good Question Challenge!

 

 

You’re invited to participate in Good Question, a unique joint venture between Man Group and Good Judgment Inc, the commercial spinoff of Professor Philip Tetlock’s Good Judgment Project and the official home of Superforecasting®.

Superforecasting is about harnessing the wisdom of wise crowds, using probabilistic forecasts to ascertain the likely outcome of future events. It has an impressive track record of correctly predicting everything from election results to market moves. At Man Group we have incorporated key aspects of Superforecasting into our investment practice. We now look forward to sharing it with our clients. We believe that Good Question ought to be a source of insight, inspiration, and debate and should provide our clients with new ways of thinking about making decisions in an increasingly complex world.

To participate in the Good Question Challenge, and to receive exclusive curated content, please select the appropriate link below. You will be redirected to the Challenge page, where you will find the questions selected by Man Group’s Good Question Team.

How the Good Question Challenge Works

Each month, Man Group’s Good Question Team, comprising experts from across the firm, will ask a question that they believe ought to be at the forefront of our clients’ minds. Then our clients will have the opportunity to pit their wits against Good Judgment’s crowd, including Superforecasters, as well as Man Group’s global investment professionals. In exchange for participating, clients will not only see the results of the forecasts, but also will be given exclusive content curated by Man Group’s Investment Strategy Advisor, Duke University Professor Campbell Harvey, and written by some of Man Group’s top minds.
