Close up of a woman's eye

Restoring trust in institutions is the challenge of our time, and as auditors we have a unique role to play in meeting it. We welcome the focus. We are proud of the importance of our work and believe the scope of our responsibility should be widely understood.

Our work is critical in creating confidence in capital markets by keeping them informed. Our Transparency Report provides insight into our audit quality measures and the steps we take to ensure every audit is a quality audit. It outlines the initiatives we introduced over the FY18 year to achieve this. Looking back at FY18, I can say with confidence that our audit quality continues to improve.
