The global head of tax and audit firm KPMG’s hedge fund unit has relocated to New York from London.
KPMG announced in a statement released Monday that Robert Mirsky has joined the firm’s New York team to help further strengthen its alternative team and will also be responsible for heading efforts to build KPMG’s growth audit, tax and advisory functions in the alternative investments market.
Prior to joining KPMG's U.K. firm, Mirsky was a senior partner at London-based Laven Partners where he was responsible for the development and creation of a managed account platform.
Separately, Dan Roman, who was most recently the lead tax partner for KPMG’s U.K. hedge fund practice, will become the head of the department.
KPMG has over 155,000 professionals in 155 countries.
