MJ Hudson acquires Allenbridge and Tower Gate Capital

RELATED TOPICS​

MJ Hudson has expanded it's alternative investments offering with the acquisition of investment advisory firm Allenbridge and outsourced fund management provider Tower Gate Capital.

Established as an alternative investments law firm in 2010, MJ Hudson has grown rapidly and expanded its service offering within alternatives. Including the new acquisitions, MJ Hudson now provides advice and a fully integrated operating infrastructure to more than 300 asset managers, managing in excess of GBP200 billion. It also supports the activities of more than 100 institutional investors, together investing in excess of GBP500 billion.
 
Chief executive Matthew Hudson (pictured), says: “Our goal is to build the preeminent advisory and infrastructure business in alternative assets. This strategy is driven by three strong trends: the continuing growth in importance of alternative assets in investment portfolios, the increasing information requirements of fund investors and fund managers and the mounting pressure from investors, regulators and legislators for a more sophisticated and well-governed manager and fund infrastructure. Our fully regulated platform of outsourced front, mid and back office services, from legal, fiduciary, and regulatory cover to ratings, management, asset allocation and investor relations, offers clients an integrated and robust solution.”
 
Tower Gate Capital CEO Bobby Console-Verma says: “We are very pleased to join MJ Hudson, a high growth, dynamic business, with a strong reputation. We have worked with the team at MJ Hudson since its establishment and have seen it grow rapidly from a specialist law firm to become a leader in alternative asset and management services.”
  
Allenbridge CEO Odi Lahav says: “We are delighted to join MJ Hudson, a firm that we’ve known for several years. MJ Hudson shares our core values and our vision for Allenbridge, and we’re confident that merging our distinctive and complementary organisations will provide even better service for our clients.”
  
Hudson adds: “Both these acquisitions significantly enhance MJ Hudson’s offering. We can now offer fund managers, advisers, institutional investors and others a comprehensive asset management and investment infrastructure. Covering such a broad community of clients across the investment management universe allows us to serve our clients better, by giving us multiple perspectives on the issues they face.”
 
Whilst the Allenbridge name continues, all of the services provided by Tower Gate Capital and Allenbridge can now be accessed under the MJ Hudson brand.
 
Hudson says: “In light of the transformative impact these new acquisitions have on our business, we are launching a new corporate identity. We will soon unveil an updated website that will help our current and future clients learn more about the new services we now provide.”
