KPMG Alts. Tax Practice Adds Three

Sep 19 2013 | 12:29am ET

KPMG is adding some muscle to its alternative investments practice.

The accounting firm announced three new hires, all of whom will focus on hedge funds, private equity firms and real-estate funds. Camille Asaro was named an audit partner, Jay Freedman a federal tax principal and Linda Grogan a tax managing director. All three are based in New York.

"AI continues to flourish and expand and we plan to continue growing right along with it," Chuck Walker, KPMG's national leader for its alternative investments tax practice, said.

The three hires follow the recent additions of Constance Hunter as chief alternative investments economist and Michael Cross as director of account relationships in the southeastern U.S.
