The former Tory foreign minister and eurosceptic will advise the Big Four firm on public private partnerships across Europe as well as privatisation proposals and deals.

PwC will also be able to draw on Sir Malcolm’s experience as defence secretary, since he will also advise on transactions in the defence and transport industries at home and abroad. He will work closely with Charles Lloyd, who leads the UK infrastructure, government and utilities team within PwC’s corporate finance division.

‘Sir Malcolm’s breadth of experience will help us further develop our understanding of the strategic policy, financing and corporate issues our government and private sector clients face,’ Lloyd told the Financial Times.
