KPMG Forensic has appointed Rachel Sexton as a Partner in its UK Financial Services practice. She is a financial services specialist with significant experience in leading large-scale anti-money laundering (‘AML’), economic sanctions, cross-border tax and other financial crime investigation and remediation projects. Rachel has led teams working on some of the largest regulatory investigations conducted in the UK, US, Germany and Switzerland in recent years.
Her clients have included global retail and investment banks, private banks and insurance companies. Through this experience, she provides valuable advice and insights to clients dealing with complex, time-critical regulatory enquiries and investigations.
Rachel joins KPMG from Deloitte in Switzerland. She is returning to the UK after working in Switzerland for four years.
During her time abroad, she worked with the largest Swiss banks as well as many private banks to assist with AML, sanctions and cross-border tax compliance and investigations. These cross-border tax investigations were the precursors to the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (‘FATCA’).
At KPMG, Rachel will continue to focus on advising clients on FATCA, AML and economic sanctions as well as other compliance and remediation issues. Rachel’s appointment is critical to the continued success of the team as the financial services sector faces increasingly complex regulation and more oversight from regulators both in the UK and abroad.
Alex Plavsic, KPMG’s head of forensic said: “I am delighted to welcome Rachel to KPMG’s forensic practice. Her appointment further complements and expands our capability to deliver large-scale financial crime projects, with a particular focus on large financial services regulatory look back and remediation projects.”
