Our Audit and Assurance Service is valued not only for its compliance with professional standards but also for its relevance to clients' business and the insight it provides to management.
The PricewaterhouseCoopers approach places particular emphasis on the control of business risk and change, considering business processes and their relevant accounting systems and computer environments. Audits are undertaken with precise service commitments in mind. These commitments underpin every aspect of the way we manage our audits, enabling us to utilize our resources in the most efficient way. Since risk is inherent in virtually every action and inaction, companies need to view risk in a more comprehensive, strategic, and enterprise-wide context.
By managing risk effectively, a company not only minimises risk when a crisis occurs but it also enables the company to be strategically proactive and opportunity driven in achieving its goals. In other words, organisations are coming to realise that risk is no longer a liability but, properly managed, a powerful asset that can bestow competitive advantage.
Our risk professionals are trained to take an enterprise-wide view of a company's risks. Beginning with an understanding of the company's strategic objectives and risk tolerance, a multi-functional team will then help the company develop risk management solutions that minimize hazard, resolve uncertainty and maximize opportunity.
