Robert Mirsky, global head of KPMG's hedge fund practice, has relocated to New York from London where he will join the US firm to help further strengthen its alternative investments team.

Based in New York City, Mirsky (pictured) will spearhead efforts to continue building on the growth the US firm has already seen across the audit, tax and advisory functions in the alternative investments market.
"In the rapidly growing global alternative investments industry, there is an increasing demand for the in-depth industry knowledge and global perspectives that KPMG professionals can offer," says Mirsky. "It is an exciting time for all of us in this industry, and I look forward to working with our US and global clients on the business challenges and opportunities that they are facing.”
"We are thrilled to have Rob join our team here in New York as we continue to build our alternative investments practice in the US," says Chuck Walker, national leader, alternative investments, tax.
Mirsky is a senior alternative asset management professional and investment and operations specialist. Prior to joining KPMG's UK firm, he was a senior partner with Laven Partners in London and was responsible for the development and creation of a managed account platform. Prior to that, he worked with other Big Four organisations around the world with a focus on the hedge fund industry.
"Hedge funds, and the alternatives industry more broadly, are priority sectors for our investment management practice," says Tom Brown, KPMG's global head of investment management. "Rob's relocation will be a great addition to the US practice and the New York office where he will be able to help the team maximize opportunities to further grow the US and multinational businesses." 
In addition to Mirsky's new assignment, Dan Roman, who was most recently the lead tax partner for the UK hedge fund practice, will become the head of the UK hedge fund practice. Audit partner Brian Clavin will become the European head of the practice. He is also head of the Irish investment management practice.
