KPMG forms Canada alliance

KPMG in Canada has formed a strategic alliance with an infrastructure advisory firm.

The strategic alliance with Vancouver-based boutique advisory firm Agentis Capital is to better serve clients involved in complex infrastructure deals and other large-scale capital projects, including P3s.
The financial services giant said by combining the collective market-leading experience in financial advisory and tax services, this alliance will solidify an existing relationship between both firms in order to provide multidisciplinary, end-to-end infrastructure advisory services in areas of mutual interest.
Andrew Grieve, partner at Agentis Capital, said: "We are incredibly excited to be engaging in an alliance with KPMG. Our relationship with the lead individuals from the KPMG team extends across a significant number of transactions over more than 10 years"
"This strategic alliance both exemplifies and reinforces our deep commitment to our clients at a time where significant investments in infrastructure are being made in Canada and abroad," added Benjie Thomas, national industry leader, private equity and pension plans with KPMG in Canada.
Deals in the last 12 months Agentis has advised on include the financing of the Central 70 project in the US and the refinancing of the Autoroute 30 project and Honourable Herb Gray Parkway projects in Canada.
