Affected market: Asset management
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided
that the anticipated acquisition by Man Group of a 25% interest in
BlueCrest Capital Management does not qualify for investigation under
the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, because neither the
UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act
is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
