The complexity of risks has reached unprecedented levels in a landscape marked by technological shifts, cyber threats, evolving customer expectations and growing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns. At the same time, intensified regulatory scrutiny adds pressure for unwavering compliance. Effectively navigating this intricate environment demands a comprehensive governance, risk, and compliance strategy underpinned by robust internal audits and controls. This framework requires steadfast, independent assurance to ensure the effective management of these risks.

How we can help

At KPMG, we empower you to bolster governance, compliance and internal audit capabilities. Our professionals provide the independent assurance needed to confidently manage risks and opportunities, fostering stakeholder trust in your journey forward.

KPMG internal audit and ERM professionals blend risk expertise, sector insights, and advanced digital tools. This fusion enables extensive risk assurance spanning the wider professional spectrum. Tailoring strategies to your needs, we can help optimize risk management, fortify internal audits, and provide actionable risk insights. Our focus on impartiality helps ensure you receive unbiased assurance, instilling the confidence that comes with well-managed risks to fortify unwavering stakeholder trust.

KPMG professionals identify financial misreporting and reset the compliance baseline underpinning contractual relationships with stakeholders, resulting in significant return on investment. At the end of a successful project, our client gets a cash payment.

KPMG professionals provide real-time independent feedback on the health of major construction projects so that key decisions around cost, time and quality are made by project owners on a considered basis not by project managers on a reactionary basis.

KPMG firms can create sustainable ERM systems designed to drive profitability and competitiveness. Through predictive insights, KPMG professionals help clients enhance business value and performance by effectively responding to risks. Our industry-specific ERM capabilities apply across financial and non-financial sectors and include enterprise risk assessments, evaluation of current risk management practices, development of a practical road map to achieve desired end-state, knowledge transfer and training.

We leverage industry knowledge and regulatory capabilities to assist regulators, boards and management in evaluating an organization’s compliance with applicable rules and regulations. Global regulations may be similar and can be interdependent; KPMG professionals can help ensure compliance with established and changing regulations.
