KPMG in the Isle of Man are delighted to announce the appointment of David Watterson, who has joined their Advisory team as a Senior Manager, specialising in Forensic and Data & Analytics Services.

David has been a member of the KPMG family for almost 20 years, having begun his career at KPMG in the Isle of Man in 1999 in the Restructuring and Forensic team. He has also held Forensic roles with KPMG in the UK and KPMG in Central and Eastern Europe. He is a Certified Fraud Examiner and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Graduate Diploma in Law, a Master’s degree in Counter Fraud and Counter Corruption Studies and an MBA.

In his new role, David will have responsibility for delivering Forensic services, including Fraud Risk Management, Anti-Bribery and Corruption Services, Investigations and Forensic Technology Services. Drawing on extensive Forensic Technology experience, David will also develop the firm’s Data & Analytics offerings, assisting clients in using data to understand risks and recognise opportunities.

David’s most recent experience within the KPMG network has seen him work across a diverse group of 18 countries within Central and Eastern Europe. In contrast, his new role will be focussed primarily on the Isle of Man, allowing him to tailor KPMG’s services to the specific needs of organisations on the Island.

On the challenges of his new role, David says: “My main ambition would be to encourage more organisations to seek support in managing the fraud, corruption and misconduct risks they face before a serious incident arises. As an investigator, it can be very satisfying to support a client in understanding and managing the impact of an incident, but prevention is usually better than cure.

“Over the last 19 years I have undertaken hundreds of projects for clients ranging from individuals to the
largest multinationals and across most industries. I grew up here [on the Isle of Man] but I have spent most of my working life overseas. It’s great to be back and to have the opportunity to apply what I’ve learned for the benefit of organisations on the Island.”

Welcoming David to the role, Managing Director of KPMG in the Isle of Man Russell Kelly said: “It’s vital that the Isle of Man protects its reputation as a leading international business centre. While money laundering risks have been on the radar for some time, and rightly so, we shouldn’t forget that organisations also face a range of other financial crime risks.

“David’s depth and breadth of experience across a range of Forensic services will further strengthen our offering, and I am sure our clients will welcome David’s return to our Advisory team.”
