Why choose KPMG?
We focus on the issues that really matter to you.

Performance - in the current climate it is important for any financial services provider to deliver strong and consistent earnings across a range of financial indicators. Cost management, operational excellence and the optimisation of business operating models are all critical.

Growth - to be a major player, financial services providers have to consistently deliver strong and sustainable revenue growth. Product development, cross selling and client retention are all vital growth strategies to consider.

Governance and regulation - the management of risk is fundamental to a high performing financial services business and is closely watched by a range of global and national regulators. From FMA to FATCA and KYC and AML compliance, good corporate governance, with strong internal controls and effective risk management is vital in all parts of the business.

Conduct and culture – it is no longer sufficient to simply generate returns and comply with relevant regulations, it is also paramount to ensure your actions can be demonstrated to be in the best interest of the customer.

Disruption, Digitisation and Cyber Risk – any business operating in the financial services sector must be aware of and reacting to an increasing and varied series of threats in order to secure its customer’s assets, meet their needs and remain relevant
