While at KPMG, Margaret and her international team advised fund managers and sovereign wealth and pension funds on the tax aspects of their investments into a wide range of international infrastructure investments in many sectors for example, airports, solar and wind farms, roads and power stations. The career development of her team and colleagues was a key element in building an excellent, market leading service.
