The firm is a joint venture between Marcum LLP, one of the largest independent public accounting and advisory services firms in the United States, and RBK, the largest independent accounting and business advisory firm in Ireland.
Our highly respected team of professionals can help you meet the challenges of starting or managing your fund. In today’s environment of increased regulation and changing rules, MarcumRBK’s Alternative Investment Group stays on the cutting edge of relevant policies, practices, and procedures.
In addition to the more traditional long/short equity funds, MarcumRBK’s Alternative Investment Group has in-depth knowledge of complex entities with hard to value investments, such as PIPE funds, life settlement funds, ABL funds and credit strategies. We also provide services to investment managers.
We remain committed to offering our clients the highest level of personal service available. The responsiveness and accessibility that MarcumRBK’s team offers is unmatched by our competitors.
The preparation of financial statements and note disclosures in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), and Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 102 for alternative investment entities is becoming ever more complex in this dynamic industry.
Keeping up with the frequent changes in the accounting industry and the financial statement disclosure requirements (such as those required under IFRS 9 – Financial Instruments) is difficult in today’s fast paced environment and creates challenges for management. As an audit firm, MarcumRBK, is uniquely qualified to prepare a set of IFRS financial statements and the related note disclosures specific for investment funds, including hedge funds, private equity, and funds of funds.
In addition to our core audit services, MarcumRBK’s Alternative Investment Group offers a comprehensive service to investment funds in which it will prepare a set of US GAAP or IFRS financial statements and supporting schedules. The investment fund’s independent auditor would, in turn, apply audit procedures to such financial statements.
MarcumRBK’s Alternative Investment Group stays on the cutting edge of new accounting pronouncements and industry practices. We currently prepare financial statements and advise on technical accounting matters for several hedge and private equity funds whose auditors are “Big 4” accounting firms. We act as a liaison between our clients, the auditors and the administrators to ensure the financial statement preparation and audit process run efficiently. We have many years of experience working with prominent and reputable fund administrators.
Our team of industry experts has the ability and capacity to prepare financial statements of any investment fund structure or strategy. Our clients appreciate the quality service that an independent accounting firm of our size is prepared to offer while containing costs and maximizing efficiencies. MarcumRBK is registered with Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board (CARB), which demonstrates our commitment to audit quality and integrity.
