KPMG bags two awards at PEA Awards

KPMG won two prestigious accolades at the recent Private Equity Africa Awards 2017 (PEA Awards): Global Financial Advisor and Single Deal Advisor.

KPMG's Head of Private Equity Advisory for Africa, Michael Rudnicki (pictured), said:

"We are very excited with these achievements, which enforces our vision of driving the right client solutions in everything we do."

The 2017 Awards attracted over 120 self-entries, and were complemented by recommendations from the PEA editorial team and supported by industry data. The nominations were in partnership with the London Business School Private Equity Institute.

The final winners were chosen by an independent panel of leading industry professionals with representation from CDC, HarbourVest, IFC, LPEQ, Hamilton Lane, Rede Partners, Aon Hewitt, Swedfund, Sarona Asset Management and Cebile Capital.

Gail Mwamba, the Awards Chair and Editor of Private Equity Africa, said:

"The 2017 Awards have demonstrated that astute dealmakers and advisors can deliver strong private equity deals to global standards across the continent, despite challenging macro-economic conditions. We were hugely impressed by the calibre of all the entries this year, a remarkable achievement against challenging conditions. The results that the award winners have achieved in the last year truly demonstrate the immense opportunity in African private equity and the resilience of the industry. Congratulations to KPMG and all the winners for this year, we look forward to gathering again next year."
