    As firms work to strategically and effectively position their businesses, most are focused on:

    • Government intervention and regulatory change

    • Governance, risk, and internal controls

    • Cost optimization and operational transformation

    • Industry restructuring

    To transcend the current climate, investment managers are committed to restoring investor trust and confidence through increased transparency and enhanced reporting, while simultaneously navigating and implementing new regulatory mandates and delivering on their promise to customers. With this combination of forces, managers find themselves scrambling for ways not only to compete successfully, but to survive in a complex, competitive industry.

    A combination of global reach, deep industry knowledge and experience, and a cultural commitment to providing outstanding client service helps make KPMG the right team to serve the global investment management community.
