Houston-based IPA 100 firm Weaver (FY22 net revenue of $197.6 million) has launched a new asset management consulting services team to provide internal audit, compliance, and risk and management consulting services.

“Today’s complex investment strategies demand a keen eye on controls, compliance and managed risk, and the addition of these services fits well with our strategy to add expertise to serve the financial services sector,” says CEO and MP John Mackel. “Weaver’s alternative investments practice currently serves more than 2,500 fund clients, and this expansion enables us to better serve the investment community, including alternative and retail funds, registered investment advisers and large institutional investors.”

Led by managing director Bruce Mills, the new team will work with investment advisors and asset managers to address complex regulatory compliance requirements for clients, focusing on services including risk assessments and audit plan development, control and advisory reviews across the asset management lifecycle, compliance program management, and consulting related to enterprise risk management, adviser due diligence, third-party risk, ESG assessments and more.

Mills comes to Weaver with more than three decades of experience with a multi-national investment firm where he last served as global head of compliance monitoring. He previously led the organization’s North American internal audit department, covering all aspects of the business and investment products offered including mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, private equity, real estate and managed accounts.
