Investments
Transaction advice in today’s market goes beyond a review of the historic financials. It focuses on creating value and quantifying the risks and uncertainties inherent in the deal. By leveraging KPMG’s knowledge and experience, our clients get a thorough understanding of the target business, the markets it operates in and the key operational challenges. KPMG also helps potential portfolio management teams prepare for possible private equity activity.


Portfolio Management
It is imperative that fund managers begin to maximise the value of their investments from the moment they take ownership. KPMG provides deal completion and integration assistance and helps with the development of the business plan. This encompasses the strategic, operational or financial input required to improve performance. KPMG also undertakes audits on portfolio companies and governance reviews.


Realising Value
Value realisation planning starts at the time of the acquisition and continues throughout the holding period. KPMG assists in the grooming of a portfolio company for disposal, advises on exit strategy and executes the transaction. KPMG also provides vendor due diligence, which often leads to a better price and a more controlled and competitive disposal process.


Funds Structuring and Raising
KPMG provides comfort to investors and assistance to fund managers by designing optimal fund structures, signing off track records and providing advice on regulatory, accounting and corporate governance matters.
