KPMG strengthens private client team with ex-Deloitte adviser scoop

BIG FOUR firm KPMG has appointed former Deloitte adviser Alexander Marcham as a director in its London private client advisory team.

Marcham joins the firm after spending 11 years with Deloitte, firstly as a chartered tax adviser and then as private client senior manager.

Specialising in clients from the Middle East, Marcham has advised on multiple high-value UK property acquisitions, both residential and commercial.

Commenting on his appointment, Marcham said: “In many respects the world is becoming smaller when it comes to taxation.

“Rapid regulatory change across the globe is creating increased complexity for those who have business and private affairs in multiple jurisdictions. This makes it all the more important for clients to manage cross-border tax affairs closely in order to minimise risk and ensure the right amount of tax is paid.

“I am delighted to be joining KPMG’s private client advisory practice in London. The team have a very strong reputation in the market assisting entrepreneurs, family business owners, wealthy individuals, trustees and executors in both advisory and compliance matters.”

KPMG has made a number of appointments in recent months, naming a new head of its Scotland practice, and promoting Blair Nimmo to UK head of restructuring.
