How Andreas is building a better working world
“Changes in technology challenge current business models and disrupt value chains. I want to shape a sustainable future for clients in financial services, by supporting them following and complying with rules, by strengthening their core activities protecting margins and by supporting them in transforming their business. In addition, as auditors we provide confidence and trust in the stability of the financial system. In pursuing this, EY professionals work in interdisciplinary teams and address the right questions together with their clients.”
