KPMG in South Africa
I am a partner in the Financial Regulatory Services (FRS) division situated within Financial Services Audit. The division is responsible for proposals, presentations and reports in the regulatory and compliance arena as well as reviewing the compliance of financial institutions with the relevant statutes where this is a requirement of the statutory audit. I have extensive experience as engagement partner on projects with five major banks as well as many of the other South African banks and branches of foreign banks in South Africa. Advisory assignments include implementing regulatory frameworks and regulatory reporting systems i.e. (First National Bank as business sponsor, Nedcor Investment Bank, Standard Bank and Absa as subject matter expert), review of compliance with capital adequacy requirements and other supervisory requirements. A number of these projects were long term contracts where I was seconded to the institution for the duration of the project. I was part of the FNB team setting up operations in Botswana, Swaziland and Namibia. I also have extensive experience as part of the due diligence teams for transaction services in Africa and India. I was also a member of the curator team for Saambou Bank.
