The economic emergence of Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) and other high growth markets have changed the way the world does business, with those BRIC countries now comprising 40 percent of the world’s population and more than 25 percent of global GDP. "We are determined to be the leading firms in the markets that will have the largest impacts on the future of major clients," says Alan Buckle, Deputy Chairman of KPMG International.
For decades, KPMG has helped companies of all sizes to realize the enormous potential of high growth markets and to navigate the complex challenges they can present. Buckle says, "KPMG is number one overall among the Big Four in Russia. And, thanks to the acquisition of BDO, the firm has the largest share of publicly listed audit clients among the Big Four in Brazil."
"The BDO acquisition strengthens KPMG's presence and participation in a market that is highly competitive and offers great potential," says Pedro Melo, Chairman, KPMG in Brazil. "Even against a background of strong expectations for organic growth, a transaction of this nature allows us a quantitative and qualitative leap forward."
