We disrupted the accounting and advisory industry over a decade ago by breaking the mold that the sophistication of accounting/advisory firms was correlated to size. We were one of the smallest accounting/advisory firms in the United States to serve NYSE listed public companies as auditors. These companies were some of the most complex financial services organizations in the U.S.

Our service philosophy pairs you with highly specialized and accomplished professionals with high degrees of expertise in the financial services industry. By specializing in only key industries, it provides us the opportunity to focus on our core competencies and evolve to meet the changing needs of our clients. To better serve our clients, we have organized our Financial Services Practice into three key divisions: specialty finance, banking, and asset management.
