Alternative Investments

In the post-Dodd Frank era, new SEC regulations have dramatically altered the management and reporting requirements of alternative investment funds. REM has the experience and knowledge to guide fund managers into compliance and lead them to capital growth with these alternative investment structures. Our partners have worked with some of the best-known investment organizations, and work with you at every stage in your life cycle, from the inception of the plan through its growth as a start-up and into fruition as an established fund.
