Our asset management experts understand the needs of investors – institutionals, private wealth management and retail clients. How does the global crisis influence your assets?

We aim to provide you with a tailored service of the highest standard.
The market for banking is in a state of upheaval. In view of new regulatory requirements, banks must weigh up which of their business activities will still be attractive in the future. We analyse profitability and costs, equity and liquidity as well as the tax implications for your businesses. New accounting standards and reporting requirements are further increasing complexity in the sector. The global zero interest rate policy and the demand for greener investments is putting additional pressure on banks. KPMG as your partner focuses on macroeconomic developments as well as on individual solutions.
The complexity of the globalised world and the rise of unforeseen events is giving insurance companies a bigger role to play. To remain successful, it is essential to consider regulatory issues and also to implement and monitor effective risk management. Our global network of insurance experts offers solutions for the development of new product offerings, the formation of new customer segments and the optimisation of distribution and business systems – worldwide and individually tailored to the client's requirements.
