In order to earn and maintain your trust, we adhere to the following principles:
We apply the same rigorous standards to our advisory work as we do to the audit of our clients' accounts: whatever the conclusion, it is based on a careful, documented analysis of all aspects of the issue at hand. In addition, all our advice is subject to a rigorous quality review process.
All of our solutions, from advice to a fully implemented tool, are appropriate for and adapted to the size and nature of your business. It is our primary concern that the delivered solution is tailored to your needs, based on our pragmatic, yet solidly underpinned approach.
We are inclusive. Fair values, risk measures, performance reports, … should not only be data, it needs to be information. We will always take the regulatory and risk governance context into consideration, aiming at accurate, timely results delivered by a multidisciplinary team. This also implies that we will not sell a solution that does not fit your needs.
Our advice is knowledge intensive. Knowledge sharing is part of all our assignments. Risk measures or fair values whose nature, strengths and weaknesses are not understood adequately, can lead to wrong business decisions or unforeseen losses. Ensuring an adequate understanding by the client of the principles and assumptions underlying our work, be it a model, an opinion, an implementation, is of primary importance to us. We will never deliver a black box.
All our advice is given in complete independence from other parties, such as vendors, financial institutions, other consultants, … Perceived threats to this independence, e.g. from existing client relations, will be disclosed.
