Audit & Assurance Services

Challenge assumptions and utilize innovative solutions to drive transparency and results.

As a financial institution, you often face new and complex events such as refinancing, financial restructuring, and acquisitions or disposals of businesses and assets.

And as regulatory requirements and growing stakeholder demands for transparency increase, the pressure on you builds. Although it is already high on the board agenda, audit and assurance is ever more important.

We help you through a powerful combination of extensive experience in audit and assurance, innovative audit technology as well as our strong relation with FINMA. We challenge assumptions, provide insights, improve audit quality and deliver the right results for your business.

Our technical specialists support your front office or structuring teams in developing practical and innovative solutions to meet your objectives. And our accounting policy teams develop guidance and help resolve any issues. We can do this thanks to our in-house technical resources and experience of where accounting standards, financial services and capital markets meet.
