Finnegan and his team help clients manage the full range of issues that affect global businesses and investors, including:
• Annual audits of financial statements
• Examination reports of investment performance statistics
• Internal control reviews
• FINRA & SEC regulation and compliance
• Periodic Agreed Upon Procedure (AUP) Reports for verification of assets
• Service Organization Reports (SSAE 16)
• Structuring and tax planning

“One of the advantages of working with BPM is our interdisciplinary approach to advising clients,” adds Inna Merzheritsky, Partner in BPM’s International Tax Practice Group and a member of its Hedge Fund and Alternative Investment Group. “We possess in-depth knowledge of the financial services industry – key processes, challenges surrounding growth and performance, as well as planning and compliance issues.”
