Our History

We’re proud of our history, from the world’s first female Chartered Accountant to our role helping after the events of 9/11.

From the world’s first female Chartered Accountant to helping after the events of 9/11.

Beginnings are important – they set in motion everything that is to come. We’re proud of our history, which spans across three centuries, and the businesses we’ve helped over the years. 

With offices across the globe, and roots dating back to 1867, the KPMG of today formed in 1987 through a merger of Peat Marwick International (PMI) and Klynveld Main Goerdeler (KMG) and their individual member firms.

We now have more than 160,000 colleagues around the world and continue to work with even more businesses and organisations, helping our clients to grow as we grow too.
