For the fourth straight year, the New York-based accountancy Anchin, Block & Anchin has again been named the Best North American Accounting Firm in the annual Hedgeweek awards.
The awards were determined by the votes of Hedgeweek.com's 41,000 subscribers, who include a wide range of institutional investors, wealth managers, fund managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians, law firms and advisors. This award comes on top of Anchin's winning Acquisition International Magazine's award for best overall accounting firm for the second consecutive year.
Under the leadership of Practice Leader Jeffrey Rosenthal, CPA, Partner-in-Charge of the Firm's Financial Services Practice, the group has dedicated significant time to expanding the brand and name recognition of Anchin. This is a true group effort, asking clients and firm supporters to get active and voting for us.
"Anchin is thrilled to be selected as Best North American Accounting Firm for the fourth straight year in the Hedgeweek awards," said Rosenthal. "This is a testament to the consistently high levels of service and expertise we deliver to our clients. We are honored to be selected based on the merits of our Financial Services Practice. We appreciate the recognition and work hard every day to exceed our client's expectations."
With more than 35 years of experience supporting the Financial Services community, Anchin's Financial Services Practice currently delivers its experience to investment partnerships, hedge funds, funds-of-funds, private equity funds, off-shore funds, master-feeder structures, broker/dealers, mutual funds and investment advisers. Anchin has also established an affiliate in the Cayman Islands, Anchin, Block & Anchin (Cayman) Ltd., to provide audit services to funds registered there.
"Anchin's Financial Services Practice is active in the industry, providing thought leadership, roundtables and events, and resources for clients and friends of the firm," Rosenthal added. "The firm is focused on developing relationships and we have been fortunate building a great practice. Our experience working with start ups is one reason why funds keep us top of mind and vote for us year after year."
The honor of being named the Best North American Accounting Firm follows numerous others Anchin has received, including being named U.S. Overall Accountancy Firm of the Year by Acquisition International Magazine (for the second straight year), Best North American Accounting Firm in Hedgeweek's USA Awards, and multi-year honors as a Best Place to Work in New York City, a Best Place to Work in New York State as well as a Best Accounting Firm to Work For in the United States.
"There are dozens of firms who operate in the financial services industry and we believe most of them pursue these awards," Rosenthal said. "We are grateful to our clients and supporters for choosing us."
