Financial Services Risk and Regulation

Risk, governance and internal control have never been higher on the boardroom agenda as the board faces growing pressure from stakeholders. The internal audit function should play a critical role in the corporate governance framework by providing independent assurance that protects the business against risk, informs strategic decision-making and improves overall performance. However, many boards are not getting optimum value from their internal audit function and are potentially exposing themselves to major risks.

PwC's internal audit specialists help boards benefit from an enhanced internal audit function that provides better value for money and increased assurance. Our key strength is that we not only ensure that clients gain access to our extensive experience and knowledge of best practice as leading internal audit service providers, but also provide access to sector specialists who know your industry and its technical risk areas.
