Moss Adams Adds First Out-of-Country Office for Cayman Islands Venture

Seattle-based Moss Adams (FY11 net revenue of $323 million) will begin offering audit services to investment funds regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority through Moss Adams (Cayman) LP, in partnership with Rankin Berkower (Cayman) Ltd. The new business entity enables Moss Adams to serve U.S.-based fund managers who have international funds. With this addition, Moss Adams adds a physical presence outside the U.S. for the first time in the firm’s 100-year history. Under the arrangement, Moss Adams (Cayman) will sign off on the funds regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority, drawing on Rankin Berkower’s experience with Caymans-based funds and Moss Adams’ quality assurance practice.
