If there's no reward without risk, can risk be a good thing?


Good risk management doesn’t slow a company down — it helps it go faster

Many organisations are not getting the full value from their investments in risk management because their risk processes are disconnected and critical data and information are not shared. We bring an integrated perspective to all aspects of organisational risk. We advise many world leading organisations on internal audit and financial risk and controls, and continue to expand our capabilities in other areas of risk, including governance and compliance as well as enterprise risk management. From rapid assessment and effective diagnostics through to innovative design and delivery, we help organisations address risks and make the most of the opportunities available.


Can controlling risk help to drive topline growth?

We helped a large consumer products company simplify and lower the cost of controls by 50% and reduce reporting time to make annual savings of €5m . This not only helped to manage risk, but tightened the close process from 25 days to 7 days, driving topline growth.

Can you reduce access risk without reducing the agility of business operations?

We helped a large power and utilities company develop a compliant and scalable role and application security and governance framework, across all processes and multiple geographies, by customizing SAP GRC access controls rule sets aligned to job responsibilities.

Are you wise to depend on independent project life cycle monitoring?

We helped a state government entity to improve the quality and success of its major projects through independent program risk management monitoring and assessment of vendor deliverables. This facilitated the early detection of risks and the correction of errors, keeping budgets and schedules under control.

Can risk assessments reduce program risk?

We helped a global business services company struggling with implementing complex programs. Our risk assessment of its troubled program, and evaluations of its high-risk and high-profile contracts, identified problem areas and enabled us to suggest remediation options and to reduce program risk.

  • What we do

    We solve big, complex issues and capitalize on opportunities to help deliver better working outcomes that grow, optimize and protect our clients' businesses now and in the future.

    We also help you assess where risks present opportunities for greater reward.

    Today, the risk landscape is constantly changing at a pace and pattern that's difficult to predict. So we work with you to advise which assets need the most protection, and guide strategic decisions to help your organization's overall strategy to stay on track.

    We do this across four key areas: risk assurance, internal audit, cybersecurity and risk transformation.

    Our risk landscape spans geopolitical, social, demographic, economic, cybersecurity, cloud, mobile, and every imaginable disruption presenting risk to business today.

    We help you plan, manage, mitigate and respond to risk, and equip you with business continuity and disaster recovery plans to get back to business as usual. We also help you assess where risks present opportunities for greater reward.

    Building a risk management framework is essential for every organization. Once we've built it, we also help your internal audit function to check that it's being adhered to.

    That framework extends from asking CEOs whether their current risk approach is fit for purpose, to identifying where simple human errors could cause catastrophic security breaches.
