KPMG in Canada has announced a strategic alliance with Agentis Capital, a leading infrastructure advisory firm, to better serve clients involved in complex infrastructure deals and other large-scale capital projects. By combining the collective market-leading experience in financial advisory and tax services, this alliance will solidify an existing relationship between both firms in order to provide multidisciplinary, end-to-end infrastructure advisory services in areas of mutual interest.
"This strategic alliance both exemplifies and reinforces our deep commitment to our clients at a time where significant investments in infrastructure are being made in Canada and abroad," says Benjie Thomas, National Industry Leader, Private Equity and Pension Plans with KPMG in Canada.
