Ernst & Young LLP (EY) has been recognized as Best Audit Services provider, Best Tax Advisor and Best Advisory Firm in the US Services Awards 2018 by Alt Credit Intelligence, a member of the HFM family of magazines. EY received the distinction for its superior performance and breadth of offerings to hedge funds in the alternative credit space over the past year.

“We are honored to receive this highly regarded acknowledgement from Alt Credit Intelligence in recognition of our outstanding service and support to new and existing clients,” said Natalie Deak Jaros, EY Global Hedge Funds Market Co-Leader. “Our teams have exhibited great success across multiple service lines and we look forward to continuing to optimize our offerings to better serve our clients.”

Now in its third year, the Alt Credit Intelligence US Services Awards program recognizes best-in-class services to alternative credit fund managers and excellence in customer relations, technological innovation and overall service.

“The US Services Awards 2018 is a list of very impressive candidates, so it is a privilege to stand out among this group,” said Dave Racich, EY Global Hedge Funds Market Co-Leader. “This year is off to a great start and we are excited to build upon these three awards and continue delivering outstanding service.”

Similar to the well-established HFM US Hedge Fund Services Awards, where EY has won Best Accounting Firm for the past eight years, Alt Credit Intelligence winners are chosen by a panel of judges composed of representatives from the publication and industry experts. The judges take into account all of the relevant firms and review each contender’s commercial success and growth, innovative product development and customer service.

In addition to providing core audit and tax services, EY offers a wide range of specialty services that help clients manage risk and improve their organization’s growth, operational efficiency and compliance. The EY Wealth & Asset Management practices in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia serve the industry across key financial centers. EY firms globally provide services to more than 70% of the top 100 global hedge funds. Their wide-ranging and diverse portfolio of clients employ all strategies — from long/short equity to the most complex global fixed-income and derivatives funds, as well as funds of funds.
