Rothstein Kass (http://www.rkco.com), a leading national professional services provider, today announced that Howard Altman, Co-CEO and Principal-in-Charge of the firm’s Financial Services Group, has been elected Treasurer of the Managed Funds Association (MFA). Mr. Altman has also been appointed by MFA to serve a one-year term as a member of the organization’s Board of Directors. This marks the third consecutive year he has been named to the organization’s board and elected Treasurer. MFA represents the global alternative investment industry and its investors by advocating for sound industry practices and public policies that foster efficient, transparent, and fair capital markets.
“As a leader in the alternative investment space for more than 25 years, Rothstein Kass has always been an active voice on the trends and topics that are most important to this industry, and Howard has been the catalyst of those efforts from day one,” said Steve Kass, Co-CEO of Rothstein Kass. “He is widely recognized as one of the industry’s most respected authorities on hedge funds and what they must do to succeed amid continually evolving regulatory and investor expectations. We’re proud of what Howard has helped us achieve as a business, and we’re confident he’ll continue to represent Rothstein Kass and the industry well in his position with MFA.”
MFA's Board of Directors provides governance oversight for the association's education, advocacy, and outreach on global issues impacting the hedge fund industry. The Board also determines MFA's policy priorities, and ensures that proper resources are in place to allow for the association's constructive contribution to policy debates. MFA’s Board of Directors is comprised of a diverse group of industry leaders from member firms who collectively represent a cross-section of the hedge fund industry.
“We have a passion for the alternative investment space, and we continue to support and drive advocacy through our involvement in organizations like MFA as well as the insights we deliver through the Rothstein Kass Institute and our global thought leadership initiatives,” stated Mr. Altman. “The hedge fund sector is changing as it becomes more mainstream, and the challenges facing the industry are changing as well. I’m extremely honored to be elected to the board of MFA again as the organization continues to further industry dialogue and be a catalyst for progress and growth for both investors and managers. This appointment is truly a credit to the work of the entire Rothstein Kass team.”
