McGladrey, a provider of assurance, tax and consulting services, has expanded its financial services investment practice in Connecticut.
The team provides services to hedge funds/investment partnerships, fund of funds, investment advisers, broker-dealers, futures commission merchants, mutual funds and private equity groups.
Partner Kislay "Sal" Shah (pictured) relocated to McGladrey's Stamford, CT office earlier this summer to serve the firm's existing relationships throughout Connecticut and Westchester County and to oversee growing demand for the practice’s expertise in the region.
"We're excited to welcome Sal, who brings with him deep expertise in the investment industry space, and who will provide the very highest level of service to our existing clients and actively expand our presence in this key market,” says Connecticut office managing partner Tony Ceci.
Previously based in McGladrey’s New York office, Shah has provided services to the investment industry for more than 22 years, and has worked with a number of hedge funds, private equity firms, venture capital funds, fund of funds, mutual funds, collateral debt obligation funds and mortgage-backed assets trading and securitisation companies. Prior to joining McGladrey, he served for 14 years with a Big Four accounting firm.
"Greenwich is unquestionably one of the major hubs in the world for the hedge fund and broker-dealer community," says Shah. "I'm excited to have the opportunity to be part of this community, work more closely with the tremendous McGladrey talent that already resides in Connecticut and help more funds understand the insight that McGladrey delivers."
