Assurance

The complexities of auditing investment entities requires a thorough knowledge of the regulatory framework in terms of tax and financial reporting, the extent and nature of agreement between key parties and the nature of the investment portfolio.

Our experienced team of audit professionals has developed an audit methodology which delivers robust and objective statutory audit assurance, tailored to the specialist nature of asset management business. Our audit methodology also provides a strong, complementary platform for internal audit and other special assurance engagements which Audit and Investment Committees may commission to deal with specific issues and concerns.

Valuations

Whilst businesses may be similar, they have many differences, some of which are qualitative and cannot easily be captured in a formula but are nevertheless key factors which influence value. Our audit and valuations teams invests time to understand your portfolio, your investment strategy and the nature and dynamics of the individual investment. We use benchmarking data, analytical tools and common sense to spot counterintuitive trends and to help validate key inputs.

Our reports are practical, concise and focus on the key areas of judgement.
