We know the investments industry.
Changing regulatory requirements and audit and accounting standards present unique challenges for the hedge fund community. With extensive experience in the hedge fund and private equity industry, we understand this world – and its challenges.
Kaufman Rossin’s dedicated financial services team provides audit, tax and consulting services to hedge funds, private equity firms, investment advisers and broker-dealers. We’ve been working with funds for decades; the investment industry is one of our top practice specialties.
We work 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 hedge funds comply with regulations set forth by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and the National Futures Association (NFA) and 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 foreign reporting requirements. We help hedge funds plan strategically to minimize their investors’ tax burdens, comply with regulations, minimize risk and meet their financial goals.
