Who are we?

An important part of this service line is assessing the internal control environment of financial institutions. Providing assurance, for example, through an ISAE3402 report, is an important piece of added value that we also provide to our clients. By actively supporting the Internal Audit function through thematic audits, or performing the internal audit function ourselves, we make an important contribution to the overall internal control environment of our clients.

Below a brief description of our other service lines:

  • Consulting: we advise and support clients in being demonstrably compliant with laws and regulations and to stay in control. This includes implementing new laws and regulations, designing and implementing internal control frameworks, managing various projects for various clients and conducting and preparing gap analyses on regulatory demands.
  • Financial Reporting: we support asset managers, fund administrators and pension funds with the preparation of financial and regulatory reports and assist them with complex reporting issues. This ranges from various types of regulatory reports to very complex annual financial reports prepared on the basis of a variety reporting standards in multiple jurisdictions.

All our colleagues have the opportunity to explore the three service lines and avail broader career opportunities and fields of expertise.
