Fraudsters are constantly adapting their schemes to make detection by traditional fraud models more difficult. Meanwhile, regulators expect financial institutions to improve their fraud management programs. PwC can help by providing services that go beyond core compliance programs, internal controls, and traditional risk management. We offer a sophisticated, flexible approach that reflects your culture, needs, and issues, and that addresses connections with related areas of financial crime.

Anti-bribery and corruption

Proliferating global business opportunities have raised the risk of international corruption. Governments around the world are taking this risk seriously, as measures such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act demonstrate. Regulators are investigating public and private corruption to promote fair and transparent business practices. At PwC, we understand that clients need to stay ahead of the curve to conform to international expectations while continuing their global expansion.
