KPMG Annual Review “Anticipate. Innovate. Deliver.”

Chairman’s message.

The CEOs I meet with around the world are facing a multitude of challenges and significant new opportunities. The impact of transformational technology, marketplace disruption, the arrival of new competitors and the challenge of staying close to an increasingly transient consumer, are consistent and particularly relevant themes. There is an escalating degree of “uncertainty” that needs to be factored into our own plans and those of the businesses that KPMG firms work with in more than 150 countries around the globe. And while the world remains an uncertain place, I am immensely proud of how KPMG continues to adapt to our “new normal” and to succeed and grow in this challenging and hyper-competitive market. 

Over the past year, we’ve again achieved strong growth across our Audit, Tax and Advisory businesses, investing in important areas, including our people, technology and innovation, to support delivery of market-leading solutions to the most pressing challenges facing clients in today’s uncertain world.

The theme for our International Annual Review this year is “Anticipate. Innovate. Deliver.”, and that is just what KPMG member firms around the world have been doing for clients throughout 2016. In this year’s Annual Review, which once again is a completely digital experience, you will be able to explore examples of how KPMG is working shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to deliver real results, and creating a modern, innovative working environment in which our people can prosper.

Building public trust has always been at the heart of everything we do at KPMG, and that has never been more relevant than it is today. We know that trust has to be earned, and it starts with a relentless focus on quality across every one of our lines of business, sectors, and functions. We spend many tens of thousands of training hours a year to help ensure that all KPMG professionals understand their responsibilities, and obligations, and we continuously strengthen our commitment to building trust and ensuring quality in everything we do.

We also work at all levels of our business to ensure that trust is always top of mind for our people. We encourage partners and colleagues to live our values every day – meaning that in every interaction and every situation, we expect them to act with integrity.

KPMG is working shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to deliver real results.

John Veihmeyer, Chairman, KPMG International
