KPMG in South Africa’s Basel team has extensive implementation experience of corporate and commercial rating models in many banking institutions in South Africa, as well as retail implementation experience in both co-ordination and application. KPMG also has broad local experience in both top-tier and lower-tier banking institutions in performing Basel II and III gap analyses, providing education and training to senior and executive management and in assisting in Basel II use-testing.
