Capital markets team added to Birmingham by PwC

PwC has created a capital markets, account advisory and structuring (CMAS) team in its Birmingham base – the first time this team has been located outside of London.

Recruited mainly from the local area, the 17-strong team based in One Chamberlain Square helps clients through changes in accounting, financial reporting issues or preparing for an IPO.

Developing a regional CMAS team is one of the latest investments in the region by PwC, which also saw the recruitment of 160 graduates in the region and the acquisition of Olive Horse earlier in the year.

Tom Kirkham, PwC Midlands CMAS regional team lead said: “The Midlands is the heart of the country and was strategically selected to house the firm’s regional CMAS team due to its proximity to a fantastic range of industries and companies outside of the City, and the young, vibrant local workforce in the region.

“There is a wealth of knowledge and talent within the region, so building the team here enables us to provide employment opportunities and the skills that will benefit both our clients and communities.

“We have already established a fantastic team here in the region delivering excellent service to our clients and we are excited by what the future holds as we continue to grow.”
