The global business environment is undergoing a profound and rapid transformation that is characterised by technological advancement, digital transformation, ESG considerations, ever-changing consumer behaviours and geopolitical uncertainties.

These challenges test traditional business models and companies must adapt, innovate and seize opportunities to thrive in this evolving landscape. Joint ventures have emerged as a unique vehicle to reduce risk and capital requirements with deal volumes shattering historic records in 2022.

Partnerships are a very different deal-type requiring a different approach compared to conventional deals, that's why KPMG has formed its own dedicated JV team.
