In his new role, Barry will lead the firm’s risk and compliance advisory capability in this sector as client demand continues to grow.
He joins with more than 20 years’ experience in the field, having spent eight of those at Deloitte.
Barry said: “This is a time of enormous opportunity for the UK wealth and asset management sector, firms are adapting to the new ways of working brought about by the pandemic and regulators are adapting to life outside of the European Union.
“I’m excited to work with the wider team at KPMG to help firms digest, manage and capitalise on the changes afoot. KPMG has a great team of experts and I can’t wait to work alongside them.”
Rachel Hanger, head of asset management at KPMG, added: “Daniel’s appointment is a really important move for us and a huge boost to the growing team at a time when clients are facing increasingly complex challenges and frequent change.
“Daniel brings outstanding risk and regulatory technical knowledge along with a positive and personable attitude. I am thrilled to welcome him to the team.”
