Kroll has grown its UK restructuring advisory practice with the appointment of two Managing Directors. Annika Kisby and Sarah Rayment will now work to advance Kroll’s position in the market.

In 2022, global corporate insolvency numbers are expected to increase by 33%, returning to levels not seen since before the pandemic began. In fact, professional services firm Deloitte estimates that they could be even higher. In the UK, corporate insolvencies are increasing significantly to that end. In October 2022, the UK government released its insolvency statistics, and these showed that the number of registered company insolvencies was 38% higher than in the same month in the previous year.

In this environment, restructuring and insolvency consultants are experiencing heightened demand. Kroll, as a firm which is one of the segment’s best known names, is no exception to this – and its two hires will be key to meeting that demand.

Sarah Rayment joins the UK Restructuring’s leadership team to support the growth and strategic aspirations of the practice. An appointment-taking insolvency practitioner with more than 30 years’ experience in restructuring and insolvency, she joins Kroll from BDO and will be based in London. Her expertise covers a wide range of sectors particularly in leisure and hospitality, retail, and real estate. She will continue to advise stakeholders of businesses in distress both in the UK and internationally.

Annika Kisby meanwhile joins the real estate advisory division within Kroll’s restructuring advisory practice, also based in London. She joins Kroll from property consultancy firm, Allsop, and will now work with Managing Directors James Liddiment and Paul Greenhalgh, helping to strengthen Kroll’s market-leading real estate offering to secured lenders. She will primarily help clients navigate a challenging real estate market, using her insights and experience in corporate recovery and receivership.

David Fleming, UK Head of Restructuring at Kroll, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Sarah and Annika to Kroll. Their range and depth of expertise across restructuring will be invaluable to the team and our clients. Kroll is experiencing a period of strong growth and I am pleased to be expanding our senior team at a time when clients are looking for us to provide much needed guidance and insight in uncertain market conditions.”
