KPMG is pleased to announce the appointment of James Siswick as a Director within its Financial Services Forensic team. He will be based in London and will focus on expanding KPMG’s financial crime business, with the United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (‘FATCA’), anti-money laundering (“AML”) and sanctions being his key areas of focus. This is particularly important at a time when financial services firms are experiencing significant regulatory pressure.
James joins KPMG from Deloitte where he was a Director in their Enterprise Risk Services team. During his 14 years at Deloitte, James worked in various roles in the UK and Switzerland, including leading various large sanctions, AML and tax related investigation and advisory projects for some of Europe’s largest financial institutions. Most recently, he has been focusing on FATCA, leading the technology and operational aspects of the FATCA team.
David Hicks, head of KPMG’s Financial Service Forensic team said:
“James brings a wealth of financial services regulatory experience to our team having worked with many of Europe’s largest banks on advisory and investigation projects in the last few years.
“As our rapidly-expanding Financial Services Forensic practice continues to deliver exceptional growth we need to continue investing in our talent base to support this and this commitment is reflected in James’ appointment.”
Brian Dilley, KPMG's Global Head of Anti-Money Laundering Services said:
"James' arrival strengthens and reinforces our ability to deliver large-scale AML and sanctions assignments. Combined with our team of deep technical experts, James will be assisting our clients to deliver complex advisory, remediation and retrospective review (“look-back”) projects."
