KPMG in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands sells Restructuring practices
KPMG in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands has today announced that it has completed the sale to Teneo of its Restructuring practices in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands.
The decision to sell the businesses was driven by significant changes in the Insolvency and Restructuring markets in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands over recent years. The increasing number of stakeholders in distressed situations has made the navigation of conflicts of interest ever more complex for Big 4 firms like KPMG. As it is expected that this will only intensify in the future, and as such developments limit the ability to grow these businesses in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands, the decision to commence a sale process was taken earlier last year.
This is the best possible outcome for both KPMG and the restructuring businesses in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands. The sale of these businesses enables us to accelerate our program of investment in audit, tax and other advisory services, including KPMG IMPACT. At the same time, it will allow the team at Teneo to serve a broader client base and explore new market opportunities.

The sale sees a well-established team of over 25 professionals transfer to Teneo. In addition, the Restructuring practices’ related services, including e-Discovery, have transferred to Teneo.
Throughout this process, our key priority has been to ensure the stability and future success of the Restructuring businesses and its talented people. This deal offers an exciting opportunity for Teneo and we wish them every success in the future.
