She has been instrumental in bringing together the alternatives and traditional parts of our asset management business.

“Since joining KPMG nearly three years ago, Ben’s relentless focus on culture and clients has helped strengthened our asset management consulting capability. His innovative style, ambitious vision and client centric approach, combined with deep and extensive board level relationships makes him the ideal candidate to lead our growth ambitions for the wider asset management sector.”
