Risk Consulting 

Organisations of all kinds are being expected to get better at identifying, understanding and managing the risks they face.

    To varying degrees, all organisations are exposed to risks associated with:


    • Technical accounting and reporting requirements
    • Effectiveness of internal audit functions
    • Enterprise risk management programmes
    • Legislative and regulatory non-compliance
    • Fraud and misconduct
    • Commercial disputation and litigation
    • Climate change and other environmental issues
    • Technological change
    • Business continuity.


    Given the breadth and complexity of the typical organisational risk profile, it’s increasingly recognised that risk management can’t be the responsibility of a single individual or department — rather it has to be embedded across the organisation


    Tougher expectations by regulators and other stakeholders now mean that corporates and financial institutions should demonstrate better discipline, control and responsibility. Failure to keep on top of and comply with existing and emerging regulation could jeopardise reputations and livelihoods. How robust is your government, risk and compliance programme?
