Acting independently of financing sources, we are able to provide clients with pure, objective advice, focusing on strategies that can help meet corporate objectives.

KPMG Professionals Are...

Individuals who take deep personal accountability for their work, have a passion for excellence, driven to achieve their full potential and understand the value of building relationships with clients, future clients, their communities, the global firm and each other. A KPMG professional should have all the following characteristics:
  • Strong work ethic
  • Thrive on challenges
  • Dedicated to providing outstanding client service
  • A strong entrepreneurial mindset

What you will do

KPMG is experiencing significant growth in demand to support our clients. We are currently searching for a Consultant/Senior Consultant in KPMG's Investment Analytics team (Financial Modelling & Value Creation). This dedicated team of specialists, as a part of the larger KPMG Valuation group, advises corporations and institutional investors on strategic, operational, and financial topics. We work directly with our clients to quantify and solve complex business and investment challenges, and support client's management with making the right decisions, based on sound, fundamental analysis.

The successful candidate will be responsible for:
