RELATED TOPICS​

MJ Hudson, a London-headquartered asset management consultancy, has made three senior appointments.

Declan Canavan has been appointed Commercial Director and a Managing Director with responsibility for business development. Canavan joins from JP Morgan Asset Management where he was Managing Director and Head of Alternative Investment strategies for the EMEA region. Canavan brings two decades of experience across a wide spectrum of alternative asset classes and investment disciplines.
 
Remarking on his appointment, Canavan says: “As sophisticated alternative investment platforms across private markets, real assets and hedge funds seek to grow their businesses, they are looking for partners with multi-disciplinary capability that can provide an integrated range of best-in-class advisory and execution services. That’s what makes MJ Hudson such a compelling proposition.”
 
Mike Booth, a former senior professional at Deloitte and Eversheds joins as Partner, Regulatory Solutions. Mike joins to build MJ Hudson’s regulatory consultancy division.
 
Booth says: “This is a natural progression for MJ Hudson, and I am excited at the prospects. In the context of changing regulatory frameworks, fund managers and others need more support and more guidance, and this is exactly what we provide: buy-side, sell-side and everything in-between.”
 
Stateside, alternative assets veteran Peter MacGuire has been appointed on a full-time basis to launch MJ Hudson’s first dedicated North American office. The New York office, based at 780 Third Avenue, NY 10017, will assist UK and Continental European clients needing a representative in the US for fund raising or other related activities. It will also act as a conduit for North American clients seeking access to the funding and transactional market place in Europe. The office will also act as a hub to our existing team of professionals across North America following the acquisition of Amaces in December 2018 and will provide additional support to MJ Hudson’s 200 North American clients.
 
MJ Hudson’s CEO Matthew Hudson (pictured) says: “We are delighted to add three individuals of this calibre to our team. As we continue to grow our business, we are determined to maintain our focus on client success and hire the right people to do that. We are in growth mode and will always hire quality professionals when they become available. Declan’s experience and relationships will help us to provide our expertise to even more firms; adding Mike’s regulatory skills allows us to add direct value to clients in an increasingly changeable environment; and, whilst we already have clients and staff in North America, our New York office will give our transatlantic business activities more focus and support.”
