How Paul is building a better working world

“Quality audits are a key part of healthy capital markets.” 

Through my role as independent auditor I am determined to contribute to the trust and confidence in the capital markets by promoting transparency, supporting financial stability and fostering inclusive economic growth.

Ultimately, all of our services help organizations to improve their performance and lead to a healthier economy, which benefits everyone in society. We take our role in the capital markets very seriously and we regularly speak with our many stakeholders on important topics. Through these conversations we deepen our understanding of the vital role business plays in society and of the policy environment we work in.
