Hedge Funds & Private Equity

We understand hedge funds and private equity investments.

Volatility can provide rich opportunity for funds…if you have the right resources.

Economic instability creates tremendous opportunities for funds. With public markets in a constant flux, record deal volume predicted for private equity, and real estate funds seeing a potential rebound as sectors reopen, a roller-coaster recovery could be extremely profitable for some fund types.

Changing regulatory requirements and audit and accounting standards present unique challenges for the alternative investment community.

With extensive experience in hedge fund and private equity management, we understand this world – and its challenges.

Kaufman Rossin’s dedicated financial services team of over 350 professionals provide audit, tax and consulting services to hedge funds, private equity firms, investment advisors and broker-dealers.

For decades, we have been working with hedge funds that deploy a variety of complex investment strategies, including distressed debt, global macro, quantitative trading, and volatility arbitrage.

We have extensive experience helping funds comply with regulations set forth by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the National Futures Association (NFA) and the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA).

Our Cayman office and regulatory approval to audit funds domiciled in the British Virgin Islands and Bermuda allows us to provide services beyond those domiciled in the US.

Our auditors examine stand-alone funds, master-feeder funds and fund-of-funds and provide start-up fund solutions.

Our tax professionals specialize in tax issues that affect hedge funds, providing tax consulting and compliance to hundreds of funds with U.S. and others with foreign reporting requirements.

We help hedge funds and PE funds plan strategically to minimize their investors’ tax burdens, comply with regulations, minimize risk and meet their financial goals.
