KPMG provides extensive advisory services to alternative investment managers.

Refining strategies to meet new investor and regulatory demands

KPMG’s Global Alternative Investment practice delivers extensive services to real estate, private equity, infrastructure and hedge funds. Serving alternative investment clients in 60 major fund centers globally, our member firms combine their depth of local knowledge and global cross-border experience to provide fund managers with the clarity and confidence to execute their business strategies.

The alternative investments market is currently experiencing increased attention, as many investors seek greater portfolio diversification and the potential to enhance their risk adjusted performance. However, rising demand also brings new pressure to fund managers to revise their distribution strategies and refine their business and operational models to reach financial goals. For example, investors expect enhanced reporting across multiple channels and rising scrutiny of fees requires fund managers to optimize operational efficiency. Heightened regulation also creates new barriers to market entry and elevated operating costs, such as the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), which is prompting changes to systems, distribution, communication and reporting requirements.

As such, fund managers are pursuing new approaches to optimize profitability, manage costs and enhance their decision-making and compliance capabilities, including sophisticated data and analytics techniques. Our global team of specialized partners and professionals - complemented by KPMG’s Audit, Tax and Advisory services - deliver strategies that can meet the financial objectives and business goals of alternative investments clients.
