Financial Services careers: helping our clients in a constantly changing, highly regulated world
Now more than ever, financial service organisations need to be up-to-date and compliant with regulation and legislation. They must also anticipate market trends.
Working in our Financial Services team you'll not only assess our clients' systems and controls, but also advise them on market developments and how they should respond to achieve a competitive advantage.
Your work will be truly global and you’ll gain valuable experience, benefiting from leading professional development opportunities and getting the support you need to succeed.
There are three areas within our Financial Services team — you’ll gain particular experience in one of them but work closely with the others to give our clients the guidance they need to reach their goals:
The asset management industry is evolving fast. As one of our sector professionals, you'll help asset managers and service providers cope with the daily pressures of this dynamic environment. You'll assist them in managing business growth, reducing risk, providing transparency or preparing for regulatory scrutiny.
Banking & Capital Markets
In today's globally competitive and highly regulated environment, banks and securities firms need to manage risk effectively while satisfying an array of divergent stakeholders. As one of our sector professionals, you'll pool your knowledge with talented colleagues to anticipate market trends, identify the implications for our clients and develop views on how they should respond.
Insurers must increasingly address more complex and converging regulatory issues that challenge their risk management approaches, operations and financial reporting practices. As one of our sector professionals, you'll help them address these issues and succeed in today's changing world.

Financial Accounting and Advisory Services in Financial Services Assurance
In the current economic climate, shareholders, regulators and professional bodies are taking greater interest in how companies derive, report, disclose and communicate about their financial position. This environment is driving extensive change across accounting standards.
In the UK, our Financial Accounting and Advisory (FAAS) team focus on delivering insights and solutions for the world’s leading financial services organisations. Our expertise ranges from specialist accounting advice from some of the leading financial instruments specialists in the industry to addressing complex regulatory issues and new requirements.
We’ve built a high calibre team of specialists in banking, insurance and asset management, as well as financial services treasury and remediation services. Driven by what’s happening in the market, our team works closely with clients to deepen our relationships and build trust through solving issues together.
Extended Assurance in Financial Services
As the regulatory landscape evolves, organisations need assurance that they are complying with regulatory requirements (e.g. CASS, prudential reporting, FATCA) and that, in risky areas, their operational processes are properly controlled and managed. Extended Assurance provides ongoing assurance to regulators, management and directors on the governance and controls of these processes.
Joining Extended Assurance provides an excellent opportunity to develop your client management skills, as we look to increase the range and number of clients we work with to optimise their assurance coverage, thereby giving their stakeholders confidence that significant risk areas in the business have been adequately addressed and compliant controls exist to minimise these risks.
