BDO has announced two key international appointments as the firm continues to expand in its private client business across the BDO global network.

UK-based tax partners Wendy Walton and Richard Montague have been named head of BDO global private client services and chair of BDO’s global private client strategy group respectively.

Walton is a senior tax partner in private client tax services in the UK. She advises high net worth individuals on their worldwide tax position, with an emphasis on non-domiciled individuals and UK and international families with complex tax issues.  Previously head of BDO’s London and then national private client practice, she has been working with the BDO International network since 2011 to develop BDO’s global private client business.

Montague is a partner in private client tax services in London and heads the firm’s international private wealth offering.  He concentrates on a wide range of private client advisory services with an emphasis on international wealth structuring, particularly non UK domiciled individuals.  He has been working with BDO private client teams in more than 50 countries for a number of years to both promote BDO’s global private client capability and ensure a consistent high level of service throughout the private client network.

John Wonfor, BDO’s global head of tax, said: “The tax affairs of HNWIs are not limited to geographic boundaries. The BDO network, which spans 154 countries, works to provide the very best advice to clients regardless of where in the world they are.

“These appointments greatly enhance the focus and direction of BDO’s global private client business, and will encourage further investment into our private client offering in key financial jurisdictions around the globe.”
