Private Equity Assurance Services

Meeting today’s auditing, financial and reporting challenges

The global business landscape is being reshaped by transformational events and trends. And that means the financial and reporting environment is also being reshaped, resulting in increasingly complex and broadening regulatory requirements and stakeholder demands.

Private equity firms are not immune to this growing focus on accounting and regulatory changes around the world. Both their funds and their portfolio companies are affected.

As your independent advisor, we have the experience to help you meet these demands by providing a timely and constructive challenge to management, a robust and clear perspective to audit committees, and transparent information for your stakeholders and investors both at the fund and the portfolio levels.
