Risk Consulting

Accounting Advisory Services

We help our clients on a range of important matters that have significant accounting ramifications, including converting to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), initial public offerings, merger and acquisition activity, cross-border transactions, improving the speed and quality of financial reporting (Quality Close) and improvements in the financial reporting process chain.

 

Actuarial and Financial Risk Management

We provide insight into the complex worlds of financial instruments, Basel II and actuarial science. Our valuations unit assesses financial assets and liabilities ranging from simple bonds to exotic derivatives in support of our audit teams and for our clients. Our Basel II advisors are among the leaders in their field and our Hong Kong Centre of Actuarial Excellence supports the entire region for actuarial due diligence and audit, Solvency II advice, and other insurance-related activities.

 

Climate Change & Sustainability Services

KPMG's Climate Change & Sustainability Services practice assists enterprises in better understanding the complex and evolving business and regulatory risks relating to climate change and sustainability, while helping them to capitalise on the resultant commercial opportunities.

 

Internal Audit, Risk and Compliance Services

We help organisations improve their corporate governance practices, risk management and internal control systems by focusing on strategic and operational risk issues spanning different functions and operating units. We provide governance, risk and compliance services to support compliance with listing rules and other regulatory requirements, helping develop integrated frameworks that unify governance, risk, compliance and assurance functions.

 

We can also help organisations improve their performance and decision-making through the establishment of an Enterprise Risk Management system or through continuous auditing and monitoring approaches.

Management Consulting

Business Performance Services

We help clients to improve operation of their business through a range of services such as margin enhancement, outsourcing risk management, finance functions and process improvement, post-merger integration, cost optimisation and performance measurement. BPS can help organisations to improve their operating margins by focusing on both cost management and process efficiency and also assists clients to make informed decisions about outsourcing, shared services and joint venture possibilities. As better operating practices are incorporated across the enterprise, this can help provide greater confidence to external investors, business partners and the markets.

 

IT Advisory

Offering services through the life cycle, our IT Advisory professionals can also assist our clients through the implementation process to achieve measurable results.

Corporate Finance

We help clients with M&A origination and deal management, target search, capital raising, strategic and financial analysis, pricing analysis, valuation, negotiation support and financial structuring. We can advise on project management of a merger or acquisition, from inception through to completion and ultimately, in some cases, an IPO or trade sale exit. Corporate Finance also has teams dedicated to the financing of infrastructure and other capital intensive projects.

 

Debt Advisory

We provide our clients with insights into the loan and debt capital markets, particularly around issues relating to liquidity, pricing, market shifts and other structural changes. We can provide advice on capital structuring and analysis of funding options and assist with arrangements for debt funding. We will also look for opportunities to advise clients on event-driven financing situations, where clients are considering a significant and/or transformational event that will impact the company’s current or future financing needs.

 

Forensic

We provide fraud risk management, forensic investigations, contract compliance and litigation support services, dealing with matters such as quantification of loss and preparation of expert witness reports. Fraud risk management helps to identify and assess early signs of fraud and determine the appropriate fraud policy to deal with them.

We can also support the Project Management Office to help clients manage the entire joint venture establishment and operationalisation program.

 

Restructuring Services

We work alongside lenders, stakeholders and all levels of management to develop restructuring strategies that improve a company's balance sheet, profit & loss and cash flow. We can provide background support to the executive team and assists them in renegotiating their finances, providing a robust challenge to the business plan that underpins their refinancing proposals.
