Ever-increasing competitor pressures and an unpredictable marketplace demand decision-making agility. Advisory can help clients make advantageous decisions in the areas of performance and technology, risk and compliance, and transactions and restructuring.
Business is essentially a series of decisions, many of which can make or break an organization. All decisions have the potential to affect organizational performance and competitiveness. Considered and timely business decisions result from relevant and reliable management information, careful and insightful analysis, and a realistic appreciation of risk.
The quality of an organization's decision making (including strategy formulation) and its effective implementation feeds directly into performance levels, the creation and preservation of value, and governance standards.
Of course, organizations are ultimately responsible for their own business decisions. However, many choose to augment their internal resources with the knowledge, experience, market insights, and judgment of skilled and trusted advisers.
Our Advisory professionals are drawn from a range of established and emerging disciplines. They have insights and experience that can help their clients:
- Achieve growth objectives
- Address under-performance
- Effectively manage capital
- Manage costs
- Achieve operational excellence
- Manage risks
- Manage compliance obligations
- Engage with stakeholders.

Today, clients expect their professional advisers to have deep knowledge of the industries in which they operate. In performing an audit, providing tax advice, structuring a transaction, or advising on e-business, deep industry experience is no longer an option – it's essential.
That's why industry focus is fundamental to KPMG's approach. We believe that we add value for our clients by having a thorough understanding of their industries – and we invest continuously to build our knowledge of the industries we serve.
Across Canada, we field multi-disciplinary teams of audit, tax and financial advisory professionals focused on the needs of key industry sectors.
