KPMG acquires the technology assets and IP of G2 FinTech

KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm, today acquired from G2 FinTech (G2), a boutique tax technology firm that specializes in tax analysis and compliance software for the investment management community, all of its United States tax software and intellectual property, including G2’s flagship product, TaxGopher. G2 will remain a separate entity with a continuing business post-closing.
