The Team



KPMG's Integration Financial Services Advisory Team works with both acquirers and vendors on pre- and post-deal Integration and Separation issues related to M&A or similar transactions. There are key proposition areas:


- Synergy evaluation – understanding the potential benefits and costs of a transaction.
- Pre-completion planning – developing high level plans for the first 100 days by workstream, setting up programme governance and developing Day 1 plans to take control.
- First 100 days and long term implementation – fully mobilised integration team with a prioritised set of opportunities and realisation of quick wins.
- Second wave integration – a refocused, re-energised integration process to capture the originally envisaged benefits of the deal.
- Demerger and Separation – understanding the separation options and giving assistance to deliver a credible, discrete standalone entity on Day 1 with value preserved and business continuity ensured.


We work closely alongside our colleagues within KPMG's Transaction Services who conduct financial, commercial and operational due diligence, providing an integrated and value-adding service to our clients to help make their transactions successful.


We work regularly on 'front page headline' deals for a client base comprising a wide range of publicly listed corporates, private companies, private equity houses and public sector organisations.

- Ownership and maintenance of financial models on an engagement and on larger engagements oversee the work of more junior staff.
- Contribution of content for sections of reports/deliverables on separation and integration projects.
When you are not working on a project, you will provide support to senior colleagues in preparation of proposal materials.

You will need to be willing to travel as we mainly work from client sites and have a global portfolio of clients. The length of a project can be anywhere from one week to one year, although a typical project will last a few weeks and we would aim to give you as diverse an experience as possible.

The Person


- Experience working within a Financial Services Deals/M&A environment ideally within the Integration & Separation space.
