TORONTO, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- KPMG International received a top performance evaluation from ALM Intelligence analysts for its depth of Transaction Advisory Services provided to KPMG member firm clients worldwide in 2015, and was among a few select organizations earning the prestigious ALM Intelligence Vanguard Leader recognition.
"With an improved global economy, a record year for deals behind us, and inorganic growth remaining top of mind for CEOs, KPMG continues to evolve and deepen its transaction life-cycle services so that we remain at the helm for driving transformation for organizations worldwide," according to Leif Zierz, KPMG's Global Head of Deal Advisory.
ALM Intelligence, formerly Kennedy Information, found that KPMG had the "strongest core due diligence function" among the Big Four and that the firm's M&A, restructuring and corporate finance service areas "combine to provide great depth in the narrow TAS space." The analysts also found that due to KPMG's strong focus on financial due diligence and valuation services, that the firm has "fostered strong relationships for these offerings across the deal spectrum," particularly in the private equity space, with a "strong impact in Asia."
In characterizing KPMG's strengths, ALM Intelligence Analyst Tomek Jankowski also stated, "KPMG continues to build on its strong financial consulting foundation."
KPMG received top scores for Financial Due Diligence; Regulatory Planning; Valuation; Modeling, Forecasting and 100-day Planning; Capital Funding; Risk; and Operation, IT, and Compliance Due Diligence services.
