Governance, Risk and Compliance

Many organizations are grappling with a number of challenges, which are largely driven by increasing complexity caused by technological change, changes in regulations, growing competitive pressures, and the impact on globalization and integration of financial markets. These challenges have continued to pose serious threats to business survival and profitability, and investors’ demands for increased return on investment, accountability, and transparency are constantly on the rise. As a result, the need to meet various stakeholders’ expectations and remain competitive has driven some organizations into making unethical and unsustainable business decisions, thereby exposing themselves to unprecedented business risks, reputational, and compliance issues.

No organization can afford to ignore risks (whether business, financial, operational, political, strategic, regulatory compliance, and reputational risks). From the boardrooms to the shop floor, our Governance, Risk, Compliance and Sustainability teams understand what it takes to develop the right strategy to help our clients navigate through the continually changing governance, risk and compliance landscape, and ultimately meet stakeholders’ expectations. We support various clients to improve their transparency around reporting non-financial information to stakeholders and help our clients to be environmentally and socially responsible.

Corporate Governance is crucial to the growth and survival of any organization. It encompasses every aspect of directing and controlling an organization and sets the tone for how the organization operates both internally and externally. It also sets the tone for the relationship between the Board of Directors, management, employees and other stakeholders including the regulators.
