MJ Hudson Group plc

(the "Company", "Group" or "MJ Hudson")


Establishment of Share Incentive Plan


MJ Hudson Group plc (AIM:MJH), the international solutions provider to the asset management industry, announces the establishment and launch of The MJ Hudson Group plc Share Incentive Plan (the "Plan"), an HMRC tax-advantaged employee share scheme.


· The Plan has been adopted to promote and support the principles of wider share ownership amongst the Company's employees and is available to all UK employees with a minimum six months of continuous service with the Company, including MJ Hudson's executive directors.


· The Plan invites individuals to elect to purchase ordinary shares of nil par value each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") via the SIP trustee ("SIP Trustee") using monthly deductions from gross salary. The Company is working to introduce share or benefits plans across all the Group's jurisdictions subject to local regulations. Further announcements on this will be made in due course.


· Individual elections may not exceed £1,800 per employee in any one tax year. For each  Ordinary Share acquired in this manner, participants will be awarded two further Ordinary Shares, known as "Matching Shares", at nil cost. Matching Shares must normally be held in the SIP for a minimum holding period of three years. The Plan may also at a future date incorporate the option to grant free shares as is also permitted under the Plan rules. 


Elections under the scheme and the requirement for Matching Shares will normally be satisfied by the monthly purchase of Ordinary Shares by the SIP Trustee on behalf of those participating employees at the prevailing market price. The Company retains the option to source Matching Shares via the issue of new Ordinary Shares at its discretion, which will be notified at the time of issue.


The following Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMRs") have chosen to participate in the SIP:




Peter Connell

Director (CFO)

Odi Lahav

Director (COO)


The Plan is currently not open to employees and executive directors in Matthew Hudson´s concert party, as described in the Company´s admission document.


Commenting on the Plan, Matthew Hudson, CEO of the Group said: "As a company listed on AIM, it is part of our strategy to provide staff with exposure to the Group's equity advancement. The Plan offers UK staff a stake in the Company through a tax efficient plan that both serves as an incentive and promotes loyalty. We will soon be introducing similar plans for our growing number of non-UK staff ."

About MJ Hudson


MJ Hudson is a one-stop-shop for advice, outsourcing, and analytics for the US$100 trillion+ asset management industry, with a focus on its fastest growing segment, alternative assets, which includes private equity, venture capital, hedge funds and real estate.


As outlined at IPO in December 2019, our strategy is to scale up through both organic growth and through M&A, adding complementary products and services and extending our geographic reach. This growth is supported by the continuing trend towards outsourcing; the growing need for specialist advice (as regulation in asset management proliferates); and the underlying expansion of the alternative assets subsector. 


Founded in 2010 by CEO Matthew Hudson (a lawyer and former alternative assets fund manager), we have grown quickly to now support more than 1,000 clients, including 18 of the FTSE 100. Our business is transatlantic, with clients clustered around the major asset management centres of Europe and North America. Our team of 230 works out of 11 offices in those same centres.
