Internal Audit is an independent activity which aims at giving to the company an insurance on the control of the operations. It also has advising function in order to increase and create an added value to the company.
The internal audit function constitutes, within the organisation of your entity, an independent and permanent function of critical assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of the central administration, internal governance and business and risk management as a whole in order to assist the board of directors, the audit committee and the authorised management of the institution to monitor their activities and the risks related thereto and thus to protect your entity and its reputation.
Banks, investment funds managers, professionals of the financial sector (“PFS”) such as investment firms, specialized PFS and support PFS as well as payment and electronic money institutions, are facing increased requirements in terms of robustness of the internal audit function.
