KPMG UK have been seeing ‘strong’ returns from their recent acquisitions such as Nunwood and Boxwood. The firm currently operates from 22 offices across the UK with approximately 12,000 partners and staff with a recorded a revenue of £1.96bn in the year ending September 2015.

Collins added: “We have invested heavily to help clients seize opportunities, tackle the challenges they face, and improve productivity. We are seeing significant demand to help mitigate potential threats such as cyber security and financial crime.”
