We investigate symmetries of the six-dimensional (2, 0) theory reduced along a compact null direction. The action for this theory was deduced by considering M-theory on AdS7× S4 and reducing the AdS7 factor along a time-like Hopf fibration which breaks one quarter of the supersymmetry and reduces the isometry group from SO(6, 2) to SU(3, 1). The boundary theory was previously shown to have 24 supercharges and a Lifshitz scaling symmetry. In this paper, we show that it has four boost-like symmetries and an additional conformal symmetry which furnish a representation of SU(3, 1) when combined with the other bosonic symmetries, providing a nontrivial check of the holographic correspondence.
