In Ghana, KPMG’s deep knowledge in Audit, Tax, and Advisory services helps business meet challenges and respond to opportunities. The firm maintains an overriding commitment to service quality and delivering value to all stakeholders – thus leveraging the knowledge and skills across its global network of firms to develop practical recommendations designed to help organisations work smarter, grow faster and compete stronger.
KPMG has been awarded top score for overall quality of work in financial services consulting according to the Source Global Research report. Based in London, Source Global Research is a leading provider of data-driven strategy about the professional services market globally – it analyses and ranks consulting and technology firms’ research based on White Space.
The report, Perceptions of Consulting in Financial Services, ranks the 13 firms identified as front-of-mind for 1,866 survey respondents, made up of direct and indirect clients and prospects of financial services consulting. Survey respondents ranked firms on overall mindshare, quality and value.
Of the ranking, Jim Liddy, Chairman of Global Financial Services at KPMG International, said: “It’s rewarding to be recognised by the industry and it fuels us to continue developing leading solutions and expertise to share with our clients. Financial services firms have an unprecedented opportunity in today’s connected global marketplace but they also face critical challenges with legacy infrastructure and industry disruptors. We are thrilled to see that clients and prospects recognise our leadership in this important field.”
Firms were ranked on a number of factors, with KPMG leading in: innovative approach, account management, methodologies used, quality of thought leadership and breadth of services. This year KPMG rose eight points in positive sentiment, a higher increase than any other firm measured.
Source Global Research specifically called out account management as an important factor in a firm’s overall rating: “…many financial services clients are in the full swing of transformation programmes, requiring a firm to pull on its full breadth of skills to meet complex client needs; a good account manager facilitates access to the full gamut of a firm’s capabilities, while a bad one acts as a gate-keeper.”
