UAE. KPMG is pleased to announce that Neil D Miller has joined as global head of Islamic finance. Neil joins from the law firm Norton Rose where he led their global Islamic finance practice.

Neil has specialised in Islamic finance since he moved to Bahrain in 1995. He then returned to London in 2000 to set up Norton Rose’s Islamic finance group which went on to win numerous industry awards under his leadership, with Neil becoming a highly regarded industry figure internationally.

Neil will lead KPMG’s global Islamic finance group from Dubai, where he has been based since 2009.

Vijay Malhotra, senior partner of KPMG in the UAE and Oman, said: “We are delighted that Neil has joined KPMG to lead our global Islamic finance practice. Neil is an established leader in the global Islamic finance market and is well connected especially given the time he has spent working in the region.”

Neil D Miller said: “KPMG’s global reach, vast client relationships and deep industry insights will provide me with an opportunity to identify services and products tailored to the Islamic Finance Industry. This, and the commitment of the senior partners in the firm to the development of Islamic finance, was an important factor in my decision to join KPMG.

“To prosper and grow, the Islamic financial industry needs to be served by firms that can deliver well researched and designed tools that are Shariah compliant and commercially viable, but also comprehensively consider taxation, audit and accounting perspectives. KPMG already has a strong Islamic finance offering and I look forward to developing this further through its international network.”

KPMG’s global Islamic finance team provides audit, tax and advisory services to clients throughout the world. KPMG was recently named the best Islamic assurance and advisory service provider at Euromoney’s Islamic Finance Awards for the fourth consecutive year.
