London – Alvarez & Marsal Taxand, LLP (A&M Taxand), an affiliate of leading global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), has appointed Daniel Parry as a London-based Managing Director to support the expansion of its Financial Investors practice.
As a market-leading funds advisory partner, Daniel will specialise in providing alternative asset management clients with full-service fund structuring advice and reporting support from design to launch. He will be providing tax advisory and reporting services for fund managers and sponsors based both in the U.K. and across Europe.
With more than 20 years’ experience in tax, Mr. Parry is a specialist in the structuring of, and advisory work for, investment funds. He joins A&M Taxand from EY, where he most recently ran the firm’s fund structuring team. Mr. Parry has carried out structuring of funds for large houses, the mid-tier sector and first-time entrants into the funds world. He has also advised a range of private equity, infrastructure, real estate and technology fund clients, ranging from £150 million to more than £1 billion AUM.
His appointment marks a time of growth and increased headcount for A&M Taxand, as it builds a full-capability funds launch and advisory practice in response to increasing client demand. His expertise will significantly bolster the practice’s alternative sector coverage, while complementing existing proficiencies in infrastructure, real estate and other sectors.
He will work closely with Managing Directors Jason Clatworthy, and Marvin Rust, the Practice’s European Leader, to continue to grow the business in the U.K. regions and in international markets.
Daniel Parry, Managing Director, A&M Taxand, said: “It’s fantastic to be joining such a dynamic team at this significant time of growth for the business.
“A&M is in a unique position to offer a more focused and better value proposition than many in the market, with its breadth and depth of consulting and tax advisory services. This is especially important now, at a time when funds and portfolio companies will be looking to maximise value from their advisors. I look forward to working with the team to shape this further.”
Marvin Rust, Managing Director with A&M Taxand UK and head of A&M Taxand Europe, said: “Against a backdrop of external market uncertainty, it has been a significant year for A&M as we continue to evolve our proposition, expand the breadth of our client services and grow the depth of our teams.
“Daniel’s experience and specialist sector knowledge will be instrumental in this next phase of expansion. I look forward to working with him.”
Ernesto “Ernie” Perez, Global Practice Leader of A&M Taxand said: “We have been making and will continue to make significant investments in bolstering our global Alternative Investment Funds team and our A&M Taxand UK practice.
“The addition of Daniel allows us to confidently claim that we can service the Alternative Investment industry end to end, a key measure in our commitment to the industry.”
