  • We had great testimonials from our debt fund clients, who appreciated our collaborative approach, our practical recommendations to improve their expected credit loss analysis
  • We have developed our Credit Centre of Excellence which provides a consistent framework for auditing loan losses across our clients and embeds IFRS 9 specialists in Bank and Debt fund audit teams to challenge and support audit teams to ensure the right questions are asked early in the audit process.
  • We have been able to refine our use of delivery centres to create specialisms for lower risk areas of debt fund audits to enable the core team to focus on the riskier areas and key judgements. Our extensive use of delivery centres over more than 5 years means we now have highly integrated teams with experience on debt fund audits.
