Seeing The Whole Picture
The Marcum LLP Alternative Investment Group together with the Family Wealth Services Group have developed a unique approach to providing accounting, assurance, and tax services to hedge funds and investment partnerships. Instead of focusing attention solely on the fund audit and K1s, we work with the owner/manager to see the whole picture. Through our years of experience working with a variety of funds, we have developed a set of best practices and potentially more important, pitfalls to avoid. We act as a guide to the manager, with the goal of becoming the manager’s trusted advisor. Our advice will enable the manager to move seamlessly through the start-up phase to the investment stage without surprises.
The process of starting up a fund is often new territory for the manager. Many times the manager has spent his entire career at a large institution. The manager is comfortable in implementing his investment style but has limited experience with the requirements of operating a business. The manager must understand the investment structure that would best appeal to domestic, tax-exempt, and offshore investors, all the while understanding his or her own personal financial and tax situation.
An important element in advising our clients in this industry is the use of tried and true estate planning techniques to accumulate wealth in the most tax-efficient way. Our firm has many years of experience structuring estate planning vehicles to provide successful solutions. Marcum’s Family Wealth Services Group provides income tax planning, charitable planning, as well as estate and trust planning all with a keen understanding and expertise in the hedge fund industry. Together our Alternative Investment Group and Family Wealth Services Group can help fund managers see the whole picture and build a successful business.Marcum's highly respected team of professionals can help you meet the challenges of starting or managing your fund. Our thought leaders are recognized experts, frequent speakers at industry conferences and often quoted in trade publications.
