KPMG at a glance

KPMG recovered from a decade of setbacks to report record revenue figures in 2019 but it remains the smallest of the Big Four accounting firms worldwide. The early roots of the firm can be traced back to 1870, but its recent history begins with the merger of Peat Marwick International (PMI) and Klynveld Main Goerdeler (KMG) in 1987. The firm’s name was formed by using the initials of its principal founding members: Klynveld, Peat, Marwick, and Goerdeler. In 2019, the firm employed almost 220,000 members of staff worldwide, with over half of those employees being based in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
