London, 28 September 2020: MJ Hudson, the asset management consultancy, today announces two senior hires into the business.

Richard Harland has been appointed Managing Director of Fund Services with responsibility for business development across the MJ Hudson group. Richard has built a 20-year career including leaderships roles in business development, strategic product development and operations with UBS, State Street and PwC.

Remarking on his appointment, Richard said:

“The dynamic, client-focused culture, coupled with a tremendous depth of expertise and experience goes some way to explaining the MJ Hudson success story, so far. As sophisticated alternative investment managers seek to grow, 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.

It is fantastic to join a team that I have known for years, and I look forward to contributing to the group’s future success.”

MJ Hudson hires Vasco Vicini, a former PwC Business, Risk and Regulatory Manager as Head of the Appointed Representative (AR) team, that forms part of the broader Regulatory Solutions team. Prior to PwC Vasco, was at Cordium (now “ACA”), the largest UK compliance consultancy. He brings a wealth of experience to the role.

Vasco commented:

“Markets have undergone profound changes over the last few years. Brexit and Covid 19 have forced organisations to rethink their operating models. This, alongside the continued growth of regulation and compliance costs are just a couple of reasons businesses find our solutions attractive. We are acting as a trusted compliance partner to guide UK firms through uncharted waters.”

Commenting on these developments, MJ Hudson’s CEO Matthew Hudson added:

“We are delighted to add 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. Richard’s experience and relationships will help us to deliver our expertise to even more firms; adding Vasco’s compliance experience allows us to add value to clients as they manage an increasingly demanding regulatory environment.”
