Banking Advisory is a core service area for KPMG China and we are looking for a Consultant to join our Financial Risk Management practice.

There is a particular emphasis currently on the implementation of Basel II/III and other current local and international regulatory and risk management initiatives. Clients include local and foreign financial institutions, and there is a strong focus on financial institutions in mainland China.

Depending on experience and skills, the role will include the delivery and management of Basel II & III/risk management projects, and staff management for ensuring the future growth of the Financial Services Advisory practice in Hong Kong & China.
