Report of Independent Accountants 		13

Dear Fellow Shareholders:
I am happy to report that the first full year of operation
of Essex
Aggressive Growth Fund has been a success from many
standpoints.  Most
importantly, the Fund provided a healthy return for
shareholders during
the year.  Its 69.40% return greatly exceeded the 6.10%
return of the S&P
500r Index for the same period.  As I mentioned in our
first semi-annual
report, the timing of the Fund's launch was fortunate in
that it was just in
time to take advantage of the dramatic appreciation of
"growth" stocks
during November and December of 1999.  While 2000 has
provided an
extremely challenging and volatile investment environment,
I believe, from
a somewhat independent viewpoint, that the management team
at Essex
has done an outstanding job this year.  Following the
initial run-up, the
Fund appreciated another 15.32% during the first ten months
of 2000 while
the S&P 500 index lost 1.81%.  In addition, despite a fair
amount of
maneuvering in order to take advantage of the portfolio
holdings' rapid
price fluctuations, Essex was able to effectively manage
the realized capital
gains position so that the Fund will not need to make any
taxable capital
gains distributions this year.  Even though tax efficiency
is not one of the
Fund's stated goals, the managers' efforts and skill at
managing capital
gains is noteworthy.  The management team has written a
brief review of
its strategy and results, which is presented on the
following page.
The table below shows the average annual total returns for
the Essex
Aggressive Growth Fund, S&P 500 Index and Russell 3000r
Index.

In addition to the Fund, this year Managers AMG Funds
established a
second Fund, the Frontier Growth Fund.  This new Fund is
also being
managed by experienced institutional portfolio managers
working within
an AMG affiliate firm, Frontier Capital Management Company,
LLC.  There
are two additional Managers AMG Funds currently in the
offing.  For more
information and a prospectus, including fees and expenses,
for any of
these Funds, please visit our website at
www.managersamg.com or call 1-
800-835-3879.  Read the prospectus carefully before you
invest.
I am also pleased to point out that as the Fund family
expands we have
expanded and improved the information available to
investors via our
Internet website.  In addition to being able to view
current and historical
net asset value per share, quarterly fact sheets and month-
end holdings
reports, investors are now able to get details about their
specific accounts
on the Internet.  As always, we post any news or other
pertinent
information about the Funds as soon as applicable.

Growth Fund's
performance during the year, this report contains a
detailed listing of the
investment portfolio and financial statements.  Should you

We thank you for your investment in Managers AMG Funds.
				Sincerely,
The Fund performed well during its first full year of
operation despite an
exceedingly volatile and challenging market environment.
While the market's
volatility was visible in most broad market indices, it was
particularly
apparent in the huge performance swings exhibited in the
NASDAQ Composite index
which is heavily weighted in technology and other growth
oriented companies.
These swings were not the result of fundamental earnings
volatility or weakness
by the component companies of the NASDAQ, which in general
had good growth in
1999 and again in 2000.  Rather, it was mainly due to the
companies marginally
exceeding or failing to meet extremely high, yet fragile
expectations.  On a
more general note, the historically high valuations, an
aggressive interest rate
posture by the Federal Reserve Board and the uncertain
political situation also
contributed to this volatility.
The management of the Fund, in this difficult environment,
depended upon Essex's
research capabilities which, attempted to look through
short-term fluctuations
and concentrate on selecting stocks of companies that had
the prospects of
becoming the "best of breed," as well as being forecasted
to have substantial
growth and sustainable revenues, cash flow and/or earnings.
This is, as you
know, Essex's philosophy of investing and has served our
clients well over a
period of years.
The specific structure of the portfolio was and is heavily
oriented toward
growth areas such as technology and health, but we also
tried to find those
"best of breed" companies in sectors such as energy,
consumer and finance. For
example at its inception, smaller capitalization technology
stocks associated
with the Internet and telecommunications dominated the
Fund.  As these stocks
became more widely accepted by others in the investment
world, valuations
soared.  At the same time, it became evident that a number
of those companies
were not going to become profitable for a number of years,
if ever.  The Fund
therefore sold the dot-com companies and avoided the
disaster that accompanied
the proliferation of these newly public companies.
However, our belief that the Internet would remain a
significant factor in our
lives led us to maintain our investment in the business-to-
business and
enterprise software areas.  We also remained convinced that
wireless
telecommunication would show significant growth over the
years, and therefore,
held major positions in that sector.  The stock market
decline in March and
April affected all stocks, but severely impacted the
valuations of the
technology stocks.  While this hurt the Fund for a few
months, the "best of
breed" companies in the portfolio rebounded for the rest of
the fiscal year
while many of the borderline companies we sold have never
come back.
We also implemented a policy of greater diversification
beginning in January and
February and accelerating during the March and April
decline.  This involved
investing in larger, better capitalized companies as well
as diversifying into
other areas such as consumer, finance and energy,
particularly natural gas.
These investments proved propitious as the economy slowed,
having a greater
negative impact on smaller technology companies than the
companies into which we
diversified.
Currently, we have maintained this diversification and the
portfolio is postured
to reflect the objective of the Fund, which, as you
remember from reading the
prospectus, is to invest in growth companies to achieve
long-term capital
appreciation with all of the attendant risks this entails.
We are pleased that the results for this first year were
69.40% versus 6.10% for
the S&P 500 and 13.79% for the NASDAQ.  One year is too
short a time period to
measure the Fund; however, we feel that by dedicating
ourselves to the
philosophy and process that has been historically
successful at Essex, our
results over the long-term will prove rewarding for all
fellow shareholders.

	(1)	Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Managers AMG Funds (the "Trust") is a no-load, open-end management investment
company, organized as a Massachusetts business trust, and registered under the
Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act").  Prior to
commencement of operations on November 1, 1999, the Fund has no operations
other than the sale to Affiliated Managers Group, Inc.("AMG") of 10,000 shares
 of
the Fund for $100,000 on October 15, 1999.Currently, the Trust is comprised of
three investment series, one of which, Essex Aggressive Growth Fund (the
"Fund"), is included in this report.

The Fund's financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States which require management to
make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of
the
financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the
reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The
 following
is a summary of significant accounting policies followed by the Fund in the
preparation of its financial statements:

(a)	Valuation of Investments
Equity securities listed on an exchange are valued at the last quoted
 sale price on
the exchange where such securities are principally traded on the valuation
 date
prior to the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"), or,
lacking any sales, at the last quoted bid price on such principal exchange
prior to
the close of trading on the NYSE.  Over-the-counter securities for which
 market
quotations are readily available are valued at the last sale price or, lacking
 any
sales, at the last quoted bid price on that date prior to the close of trading
 on the
NYSE.  Short-term investments, having a remaining maturity of 60 days or less
are
valued at amortized cost which approximates market.  Investments in other
regulated investment companies are valued at their end of day net asset value
 per
share.  Securities and other instruments for which market quotations are not
readily available are valued at fair value, as determined in good faith and
 pursuant
to procedures established by the Board of Trustees (the "Trustees").

(b)	Security Transactions
Security transactions are accounted for as of trade date.  Realized gains and
 losses
on securities sold are determined on the basis of identified cost.

(c)	Investment Income and Expenses
Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date, except certain dividends
from foreign securities where the ex-dividend date may have passed are
 recorded
as soon as the Trust is informed of the ex-dividend date.  Dividend income on
foreign securities is recorded net of any withholding tax.  Interest income is
recorded on the accrual basis and includes amortization of discounts and
premiums when required for federal income tax purposes.  Non-cash dividends
included in dividend income, if any, are reported at the fair market value
of the
securities received.  Other income and expenses are recorded on an accrual
basis.
Expenses which cannot be directly attributed to the Fund are apportioned among
the Fund and other affiliated funds based upon their relative average net
 assets or
number of shareholders.  The Fund has a "balance credit" arrangement with the
custodian bank whereby the Fund is credited with an interest factor equal to
 0.75%
of the nightly Fed Funds rate for account balances left uninvested overnight.
  This
credit serves to reduce custody expenses that would otherwise be charged to the
Fund.  For the year ended October 31, 2000, under this arrangement the custody
expense was reduced by $17,898.

(d)	Dividends and Distributions
Dividends resulting from net investment income, if any, normally will be
declared
and paid annually in December.  Distributions of capital gains, if any, will
also be
made annually in December and when required for federal excise tax purposes.
Income and capital gain distributions are determined in accordance with Federal
income tax regulations which may differ from generally accepted accounting
principles.  These differences are primarily due to differing treatments for
 losses
deferred due to wash sales, contributed securities and possibly equalization
accounting for tax purposes.  Permanent book and tax basis differences, if any
relating to shareholder distributions will result in reclassifications to paid
-in capital.

(e)	Federal Taxes
The Fund intends to comply with the requirements under Subchapter M of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and to distribute substantially all
 of
its taxable income and gains to its shareholders and to meet certain
 diversification
and income requirements with respect to investment companies.  Therefore, no
provision for federal income or excise tax is included in the accompanying
financial statements

(f)	Capital Loss Carryovers
As of October 31, 2000, Essex Aggressive Growth Fund had accumulated net
realized capital losses of $6,517,686.  This amount may be used for Federal
 income
tax purposes to offset realized capital gains, if any, through October 31,
2008

(g)	Capital Stock
The Trust's Declaration of Trust authorizes for the issuance of an unlimited
number of shares of beneficial interest, without par value.The Fund records
sales
and repurchases of its capital stock on the trade date.  The cost of securities
contributed to the Fund in connection with the issuance of shares are based on
the valuation of those securities in accordance with the Fund's valuation of
investment policy.  Dividends and distributions to shareholders are recorded on
the ex-dividend date.

At October 31, 2000, one unaffiliated shareholder, an omnibus account,
individually held 25% of the outstanding shares of the Fund.

(h) Repurchase Agreements
The Fund may enter into repurchase agreements provided that the value of the
underlying collateral, including accrued interest, will be equal to or
exceed the
value of the repurchase agreement during the term of the agreement.  The
underlying collateral for all repurchase agreements is held in safekeeping by
the
Fund's custodian.

If the seller defaults and the value of the collateral declines, or if
 bankruptcy
proceedings commence with respect to the seller of the security, realization
 of the
collateral by the Fund may be delayed or limited.

(2)	Agreements and Transactions with Affiliates
The Trust entered into an Investment Management Agreement under which The
Managers Funds LLC (the "Investment Manager") a subsidiary of AMG, serves as
investment manager to the Fund and is responsible for the Fund's overall
administration and distribution.  The Fund's investment portfolio is managed by
Essex Investment Management Company, LLC ("Essex"), which serves pursuant to
a Sub-Advisory Agreement by and between the
Investment Manager and Essex
with respect to the Fund.  AMG owns a majority
interest in Essex.

The Fund is obligated by its Investment Management
Agreement to pay an annual
management fee to the Investment Manager of 1.00% of
the average daily net
assets of the Fund.  The Investment Manager, in turn,
pays Essex 1.00% of the
average daily net assets of the Fund for its services
as sub-adviser.  Under the
Investment Management Agreement with the Fund, the
Investment Manager
provides a variety of administrative services to the
Fund, and under its distribution
agreement with the Fund, the Investment Manager
provides a variety of
shareholder and marketing services to the Fund.  The
Investment Manager receives
no additional compensation from the Fund for these
services.  Pursuant to a
Reimbursement Agreement between the Investment
Manager and Essex, Essex
reimburses the Investment Manager for the costs the
Investment Manager bears in
providing such services to the Fund.

The Investment Manager has contractually agreed,
through at least April 30, 2001,
to waive fees and pay or reimburse the Fund to the
extent total expenses of the
Fund exceed 1.10% of the Fund's average daily net
assets.  The Fund is obligated
to repay the Investment Manager such amounts waived,
paid or reimbursed in
future years provided that the repayment occurs
within three (3) years after the
waiver or reimbursement and that such repayment would
not cause the Fund's
expenses in any such future year to exceed 1.10% of
the Fund's average daily net
assets.  In addition to any other waiver or
reimbursement agreed to by the
Investment Manager, Essex from time to time may waive
all or a portion of its fee.
In such an event, the Investment Manager will,
subject to certain conditions, waive
an equal amount of the management fee.  For the year
ended October 31, 2000,
the Investment Manager reimbursed the Fund $54,026.

The aggregate annual fee paid to each outside Trustee
for serving as a Trustee of
the Trust is $4,000.  The Trustee fee expense shown
in the financial statements
represents the Fund's allocated portion of the total
fees and expenses paid by the
Fund and other affiliated funds in the Trust and in
the complex.

The Fund has adopted a distribution (12b-1) plan to
pay for the marketing of
shares of the Fund.  Under the plan, the Board of
Trustees may authorize
payments at an annual rate of up to 0.25% of the
Fund's average daily net assets.
The Trustees have not authorized the payment of any
fees to date.

(3)	Purchases and Sales of Securities
Purchases and sales of securities, excluding short-
term securities, for the year
ended October 31, 2000, were $650,699,749 and
$391,485,540, respectively.  There
were no purchases or sales of U.S. Government
securities.

(4)	Portfolio Securities Loaned
The Fund may participate in a securities lending
program providing for the lending
of corporate bonds, equity and government securities
to qualified brokers.
Collateral on all securities loaned are accepted in
cash and/or government
securities.  Collateral is maintained at a minimum
level of 100% of the market
value, plus interest, if applicable, of investments
on loan.  Collateral received in
the form of cash is invested temporarily in money
market funds by the custodian.
Earnings of such temporary cash investments are
divided between the custodian,
as a fee for its services under the program, and the
Fund, according to agreed-
upon rates.
To the Board of Trustees of Managers AMG Funds and
the Shareholders of
 Essex Aggressive Growth Fund:


In our opinion, the accompanying statement of assets
and liabilities, including the
schedules of portfolio investments, and the related
statements of operations and of
changes in net assets and the financial highlights
present fairly, in all material
respects, the financial position of Essex Aggressive
Growth Fund (the "Fund") at
October 31, 2000, and the results of its operations,
the changes in net assets and
the financial highlights for the year then ended, in
conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States of
America.  These financial
statements and financial highlights (hereafter
referred to as "financial statements")
are the responsibility of the Fund's management; our
responsibility is to express an
opinion on these financial statements based on our
audit.  We conducted our audit
of these financial statements in accordance with
auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States of America, which
require that we plan and perform
the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about
whether the financial statements
are free of material misstatement.  An audit includes
examining, on a test basis,
evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in
the financial statements,
assessing the accounting principles used and
significant estimates made by
management, and evaluating the overall financial
statement presentation.  We
believe that our audit, which included confirmation
of securities at October 31,
2000 by correspondence with the custodian and
brokers, provides a reasonable
basis for our opinion.
