Fraud continues to pose an increasing threat to the financial services industry as fraudsters are constantly enhancing their schemes to make detection by traditional fraud models more difficult. In addition, regulators continue to expect more from organizations in managing fraud. PwC delivers beyond the essential compliance programs, internal controls and traditional risk management, offering a sophisticated, flexible approach that reflects your culture, needs and issues, and the overlap with other areas of financial crime.

Anti-bribery and corruption

Proliferating global opportunities raises the risk of international corruption. Governments around the world are taking corruption risk seriously. From the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in the US to the UK Bribery Act and the German prosecutor general's office, regulators are investigating public and private corruption to promote fair and transparent business practice. At PwC, we understand that clients need to stay ahead of the curve to conform to international expectations while continuing their global expansion.
