Financial Services

Charging through the ups and downs of the financial market, Withum's Financial Services professionals can help you build a sustainable and profitable future.

As an investor, you’re focused on growth and a strong return on investment. However, in a highly-regulated space, compliance, accountability and transparency are always top of mind. A keen focus and attention to detail is essential to properly navigate the continually changing, complex compliance and tax landscape caused by regulatory changes introduced by agencies such as the PCAOB, SEC, FINRA, National Futures Association (“NFA”) and Commodity Futures Trade Commission (“CFTC”). That’s why financial services companies benefit from partnering with a reputable advisory, tax and accounting firm that offers technical knowledge and deep industry expertise.
Withum’s Financial Services team can help you navigate the intricate nuances of the financial services industry while ensuring you feel valued every step of the way. When working with funds, we can assist with understanding the challenges of starting a fund, navigating the complexities of growth through the emerging manager phase and even provide the necessary support a large, sophisticated manager requires. Our private equity accountants and tax advisors can perform simple to complex private equity audits of a fund or portfolio company and even explain the impacts of how tax reform will impact your business and investors. There’s a reason Withum is ranked nationally among the top advisory and accounting firms servicing venture capital firms, hedge fund managers, private equity firms, mortgage bankers, broker-dealers, credit unions, banking institutions, and regulated investment companies.
