    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.
