With more than 1,700 staff members represented by 73 nationalities, KPMG is one of the leading providers of professional services in the Grand Duchy. All together, we operate out of one office in the capital, Luxembourg City. We are known for audit, tax and advisory with a strong presence in asset management, alternative investments, banking, insurance, corporates and public sector. We are a family of creators, with shared values and an entrepreneurial mindset. We are focused on client obsession, daring to innovate, and we are powered by our people.
When the industrial revolution of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries helped transform accounting into a profession, KPMG’s founding fathers were center stage, pioneering the industry. William Barclay Peat (the P in KPMG) set up the firm of William Barclay Peat & Co. in London in 1891. In 1897, the US firm Marwick, Mitchell & Company got its start in New York City. The company was formed by James Marwick (the M in KPMG) and Roger Mitchell. Meanwhile, in 1917, Piet Klynveld (the K in KPMG) established Klynveld Kraayenhof & Company in Amsterdam. The last of our founding fathers, Reinhard Goerdeler (the G in KPMG) comes into the story almost half a century later in 1979 as co-founder of Klynveld Main Goerdeler.
KPMG is a global network of independent member firms providing Audit, Tax and Advisory services. We operate in 147 countries and territories, collectively employing more than 219,000 people, to serve the needs of business, governments, public-sector agencies, nonprofits and – through member firms’ audit and assurance practices – the capital markets. We lead with a commitment to quality and consistency across our global network. In a world where rapid change and unprecedented disruption are the new normal, we inspire confidence and empower change in all we do.
