KPMG has beefed up its alternative investments funds practice with hires in New York and Los Angeles.

Nancy Chan, who joins the L.A. office as managing director, federal tax, has more than 25 years of financial services experience. Most recently, she served as tax director with private equity firm Hellman and Friedman. Prior to that she was a financial services executive director for asset management at Ernst and Young, providing services to hedge funds as well as private equity clients. And prior to that, she was a senior manager in KPMG’s federal tax practice.

Nader Karimi, who joins the New York office as managing director, federal tax, asset management, comes to KPMG from Goldman Sachs Fund Services, where he was the global head of tax and product development, supporting hedge fund and private equity clients. Before that, he was the assistant vice president and global tax manager at HSBC Security Services. Karimi also served as a project manager and an international tax consultant at Investors Bank and Trust, as well as a senior associate and business planning consultant at Barclays Global Investors in Tokyo and San Francisco.

“KPMG is continuing to invest in and expand its alternative investments team to serve its private equity, hedge funds and real estate funds clients,” said Chuck Walker, national partner in charge, alternative investment funds–tax, in a statement. “We are thrilled to announce the latest managing directors to join us as we continue to strengthen our team with some of the best talent out there.”

KPMG’s alternative investment funds practice focuses on providing audit, tax and advisory services to hedge, private equity, real estate, infrastructure and funds of funds.
