Fairview Fund Administration LLC is a dedicated tax services firm focusing on the regulated investment company (aka “mutual fund” or “RIC”) industry, as well as the investment industry, as a whole. As a former Big Four CPA with both audit and tax experience, supplemented by an MBA with a focus in Finance, Fairview’s extensive industry knowledge and experience in servicing mutual funds, as well as hedge funds and private equity funds, makes Fairview a unique provider of specialized tax services.
We provide no audit services and as such, we are to focus on a broad range of services without any conflicts-of-interest. Our goal is to provide high quality, independent, and flexible RIC Tax and Hedge Fund tax services through a variety of service options ranging from contractor arrangements providing labor flexibility to our clients to long term consulting and oversight engagements providing outsourced Tax Director services.
We specialize in providing comprehensive tax planning, tax compliance, and tax structuring in the investment industry. We leverage our understanding of complex tax regulations and their impact on business to improve compliance with taxing entities while maintaining overall tax risk profile. We have vast experience in the taxation of derivative instruments, including futures, forwards, options, swaps, “swaptions”, caps, collars, floors, and prepaid notes.
Our superior understanding of workflow principals and available tax management tools help to streamline operational processes and drive down costs, including the developmetn and implementation of software and template tools. We combine in-depth corporate training experience with our founder’s classroom expertise gained as a Bentley University Adjunct Professor to develop and deliver employee development programs that optimize return on investment in personnel and technology.
