KPMG strengthens economics practice with the appointment of Yael Selfin 


KPMG is delighted to announce the appointment of Yael Selfin as a Director in the firm’s Economics and Disputes practice.


Yael joins KPMG from Edymar, the boutique consultancy she created and led, which combined economics and strategy with data analytics to advise companies and governments on their growth opportunities.  Prior to Edymar, Yael was a Partner at Volterra and before that a director at PwC where she worked as Head of Macro Consulting.


In her new role Yael will be responsible for advising KPMG clients on how the economic environment will impact their businesses. Her team will be preparing economic scenarios and using data analytic techniques to create business projections and counsel clients on their future growth strategy.


On her appointment Yael comments, “This is a fantastic opportunity to build a business that can help KPMG clients plan more effectively for the future; companies that truly grasp the new economic environment and its implications for business should be in a great position to benefit from the economic recovery.”


Bill Robinson, Chairman of the Economics and Regulation practice at KPMG says, “We are extremely pleased to have recruited Yael to add a macroeconomic dimension to our thriving practice. She has demonstrated strong entrepreneurial and team building skills in her previous roles, and I am confident that, with the support of the KPMG network, she will quickly build a business that offers innovative macroeconomic solutions to a wide range of clients.”
