We execute our work confidentially, professionally and always maintain a strict eye to the ongoing business operations of our client, their values and their culture.

Integrity Risk Advisory:

Recent corporate scandals, new anti-fraud laws and regulations, stricter enforcement of cross border anti-bribery legislation (e.g. US FCPA and UK Bribery Act), anti-corruption campaigns, such as those instigated recently by the Chinese Government, and demands by stakeholders and the public for greater business transparency, integrity and ethics have placed pressure on corporations and business leaders to put in place robust and effective fraud risk management programs that prevent, detect and respond to fraud and other integrity risks.
