A new batch of Bahraini staff recently obtained professional certifications with support from KPMG in Bahrain’s Jassim Fakhro Fund. This milestone showcases the progress of the firm’s flagship personal development initiative, designed to support the professional growth of young Bahraini talent.

It provides local staff with access to financial support, along with time and mentoring from more experience colleagues to help them pursue and complete any professional qualification of their choice.
