Rothstein Kass has been named Best Accounting Firm in the first-ever Hedgeweek USA Awards at a ceremony on June 16, 2011. Hedgeweek, a Global Fund Media publication, hosted the event, honouring top-performing hedge fund managers and service providers in the industry.
Results were based on voting by Hedgeweek’s network of nearly 20,000 US-based subscribers, including institutional and high-net worth investors, as well as managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisors.
"The list of Hedgeweek USA Award winners features some of the finest hedge fund operations in existence – firms that are the embodiment of our industry’s entrepreneurial spirit and vision," says Howard Altman (pictured), co-CEO and Principal-in-Charge of the Financial Services Group at Rothstein Kass. "In recent years, that spirit has been tested by a host of challenges, from increased regulation to global economic weakness. The industry again showed its resilience, rallying to seize opportunity by adapting to meet the needs of an increasingly institutional investor base. Over the last 25 years serving hedge fund clients at all stages of development, Rothstein Kass has continued to evolve, strategically enhancing our scope and quality of services, including our financial services advisory practice. It is gratifying to be recognised by the investment community for these accomplishments."
