MP only asks for details that will genuinely help to assist in this process, such as your name, age, gender, contact details, education details, employment history, emergency contacts, immigration status, financial information (where we need to carry out financial background checks) social security number as well as verbal and written references. Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we may also collect information related to your health and any criminal convictions.

MP may collect personal data through a range of means. These may include:

  • direct interactions (where you provide personal data to MP through telephone or email correspondence or other direct methods of communication, including applications to invest in MP’s funds or for prospective employment);
  • from third parties such as intermediaries and banks in the case of prospective investors or third party recruitment firms in the case of prospective employees;

The provision and processing of your personal data is necessary for MP in the context of your potential employment.

Transfer of Personal Data outside the United Kingdom

MP may transfer and/or process your personal data outside of the UK.
If MP transfers personal data outside the UK, it will seek to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded by ensuring that personal data is transferred only to persons in countries outside the UK in one of the following circumstances.

    MP will only transfer personal data to a country outside of the UK if one or more of the following applies:

    • "Adequacy Regulations" - The transfer is to a country, territory, or one or more specific sectors in that country (or an international organisation), that the UK has determined ensures an adequate level of protection for personal data. There are provisions which permit the transfer of personal data from UK to the EEA and to any countries which, as at 31 December 2020, were covered by a European Commission ‘adequacy decision’. In addition, on 28 June 2021, the European Commission adopted adequacy decisions for the UK meaning that personal data can flow freely from the European Union to the UK;
    • “Appropriate safeguards” - The Firm has undertaken a transfer impact assessment to ensure data continue to have a level of protection essentially equivalent to that under UK GDPR, and the transfer is covered by appropriate safeguards. These include:
      • “Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”)” - The data importer and data exporter have entered into a contract containing Standard Contractual Clauses. The UK recognises the EU GDPR SCCs valid as at 31 December 2020”;
      • “UK Binding Corporate Rules (“UK BCRs”)” - The transfer is subject to a set of binding obligations under which a group of undertakings has committed to process personal data in accordance with the UK GDPR and the UK BCRs have been approved by the ICO;
      • “Codes of Conduct / Certification Mechanisms” - The transfer is conditional upon the importer signing up to a Code of Conduct that has been approved by the ICO;
      • Additional measures - as applicable;
      • Exceptions - as applicable;


How does MP safeguard your data?

MP has in place security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. These security measures include procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach. MP will notify any affected person and any applicable regulator of any personal data breach in circumstances where they are required to do so by applicable law.

How long does MP retain your personal data for?

Candidate data:If your candidature does not proceed to employment with, or hiring by, MP it will retain your personal details for a period of six months after the position you may be suitable for is filled. After that point MP’s policy is to delete your personal data from its systems unless MP believes in good faith that the law or other regulation requires MP to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation) or if MP considers that you may be suitable for an alternative role for which it is hiring. If you do receive an offer of employment with MP, further details shall be provided to you in or around the time of your hire, regarding how your personal data may be used for the purposes of your employment.

Prospective investor data: In order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations regarding the proper classification and identification of potential investors in funds which are unregulated collective investment schemes your personal details will be retained by MP for a period of seven years after the last contact with you. After that point MP will delete your personal data from its systems unless MP believes in good faith that the law or other regulation requires MP to preserve it (for example, because of MP’s obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation).

In some circumstances, MP may decide to retain anonymized personal data for research or statistical purposes, in which case such information may be retained and utilised indefinitely without further notice.

How can you access, amend or take back the personal data that you have given to MP?

You have various rights in relation to your personal data. To get in touch about these, please email MP will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event in accordance with the requirements of any applicable laws.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Please note, however, that MP may still be entitled to process your personal data if we have another legitimate reason for doing so. For example, MP may need to retain personal data to comply with a legal obligation. You may, in certain circumstances, request that MP erase your personal data. You may also request that MP restricts, or you object to, MP’s processing of your personal data if certain criteria apply. Please note that there may be circumstances where you ask us to erase your personal data, or where you object to or request we restrict, our processing of your personal data, but we are legally entitled to retain it. You have the right in certain circumstances to data portability. This means that, in those circumstances, you have the right to receive from MP any personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and may request that MP transmit it directly to another data controller, where technically feasible. Please note that this right only applies to personal data which you have provided directly to MP.
