Responding quickly and efficiently to alleged or suspected fraud, misconduct or other improprieties such as violations of laws, regulations or organizational policies is critical.
Organizations often lack the resources with the right skills and backgrounds to proficiently conduct a prompt, cost-effective and objective investigation. As fraud and misconduct siphons billions of dollars each year from organizations worldwide, damages reputations and puts public trust in the market place at risk, boards and management at all levels are obliged to rapidly get to the bottom of a matter.
KPMG’s Investigation Services team works closely with clients to understand investigation objectives and coordinate our approach to utilize the appropriate resources. Through detailed inquiries and examinations, including the use of leading data analytic techniques, our highly credentialed professionals provide an impartial means to establish truths, evaluate implications, identify appropriate remedial actions, submit restatements if necessary and communicate with regulators or outside auditors if needed for:
- Legal counsel
- Audit and special committees
KPMG has a global team of more than 2,500 dedicated forensic professionals from member firms. We have the necessary familiarity with domestic markets and foreign cultural standards, language skills, and local regulatory and privacy laws to consistently deliver high-quality results by leveraging KPMG’s proprietary global investigation methodology.
Through central coordination, our services are scalable—from a small team in one city to many teams operating simultaneously in dozens of countries. A single point of contact can readily assemble local or multinational teams to help ascertain the pertinent information so that a concern or situation can be swiftly resolved with minimal disruption and cost.
