Tax and audit firm KPMG is expanding its alternative investment funds practice through the appointments of two federal tax managing directors.
The New York-based firm announced Tuesday that the hires are Nancy Chan and Nader Karimi, who will serve the firm’s private equity, hedge funds and real estate funds clients.
With more than 25 years of financial services experience, Chan will be based in KPMG’s Los Angeles office. Most recently, Chan was the tax director at private equity firm Hellman and Friedman.
Working out of KPMG’s New York office, Karimi will focus on serving hedge fund and private equity clients in areas including the implementation of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Prior to KPMG, Karimi was the assistant vice president and global tax manager at HSBC Security Services.
KPMG has over 152,000 professionals in 156 countries.
