Karim Haji, Head of Financial Services at KPMG, comments on Rachel Hanger being KPMG UK Head of Asset Management.
KPMG announces Rachel Hanger as its UK Head of Asset Management. Rachel will lead KPMG’s team serving clients across the asset management spectrum: from asset owners and asset servicers to alternative asset managers, traditional firms and wealth managers.
Rachel was previously KPMG’s Head of Asset Management Tax and has more than 20 years’ experience in the fund management industry, spending 10 years as M&G’s Head of Tax before joining KPMG in 2008. Rachel’s new role will be focussed on continuing to build and lead KPMG’s strategy, ensuring that the business remains invaluable to clients and connected to KPMG teams internationally.
Rachel replaces Tom Brown who is moving to a part time purely client facing role within the asset management team. She will report into Karim Haji, KPMG’s UK Head of Financial Services.
Karim Haji, Head of Financial Services at KPMG, says: “I’d like to firstly thank Tom Brown for his many years of excellent leadership in this role, he has created a strong platform for Rachel to build on.
“Rachel’s leadership will be valued beyond KPMG’s asset management community, she is well respected amongst our staff and clients as not only technically excellent, but also passionate and a fun person to work with. I’ve no doubt she will be a role model to many.”
Rachel Hanger, UK Head of Asset Management at KPMG, says: “This is a fantastic time to be taking over as head of this team. Asset management faces huge pressures to manage cost, compliance and customers all whilst juggling an uncertain political and economic environment. We’ve got an excellent team of technical experts and visionary advisors. I am confident that with the breadth and depth of the team I have around me, we can help the sector get fit for the next 10 years and beyond.”
