The need for internal audit and risk advisory services:

Our objective is to provide the audit committee, senior management, head of operations, process owners and the rest of your organisation with a comprehensive and unbiased analysis of the corporate governance processes, risks and functional efficiency of your business - and to suggest areas for improvement and value-addition.
