We help our clients on a range of important matters that have significant accounting ramifications, including converting to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), initial public offerings, merger and acquisition activity, cross-border transactions, improving the speed and quality of financial reporting (Quality Close) and improvements in the financial reporting process chain.
We provide insight into the complex worlds of financial instruments, Basel II and actuarial science. Our valuations unit assesses financial assets and liabilities ranging from simple bonds to exotic derivatives in support of our audit teams and for our clients. Our Basel II advisors are among the leaders in their field and our Hong Kong Centre of Actuarial Excellence supports the entire region for actuarial due diligence and audit, Solvency II advice, and other insurance-related activities.
We provide fraud risk management, forensic investigations, contract compliance and litigation support services, dealing with matters such as quantification of loss and preparation of expert witness reports. Fraud risk management helps to identify and assess early signs of fraud and determine the appropriate fraud policy to deal with them. Fraud and misconduct investigations include large-scale and multijurisdictional investigations, as well as documentation analysis, IT recovery, document management and other analytical techniques.
We help organisations improve their corporate governance practices, risk management and internal control systems by focusing on strategic and operational risk issues spanning different functions and operating units. We provide governance, risk and compliance services to support compliance with listing rules and other regulatory requirements, helping develop integrated frameworks that unify governance, risk, compliance and assurance functions.
We can also help organisations improve their performance and decision-making through the establishment of an Enterprise Risk Management system or through continuous auditing and monitoring approaches.
We assist our clients in identifying managing and mitigating IT-related risks. We provide assurance for technology enabled business processes such as SAS 70, WebTrust and Systrust. Core service offerings include information security assessments, ERP systems controls reviews and IT internal audit.
