This area is related to corporate finance in two ways. Firstly, the exposition to risks of the company is a direct result of previous investment and financing decisions. Secondly, both disciplines share the goal to improve or to preserve the company’s value.
Risk management is a structured focus to manage uncertainty associated to a threat through a
sequence of activities that include risk evaluation, development strategies to manage the risk
and risk mitigation by means of managerial resources. Strategies include transferring
the risk to another part, avoiding the risk, reducing the risk’s negative effects and accepting
some or all the consequences of a particular risk. Our local and international teams provide
specialized solutions in the following areas:
Governance, risk & compliance
We help to implement corporate governance and internal control frameworks, as well as to establish appropriate follow-up practices. The aim is to reduce different risks associated to a pre-selected
environment. It could refer to several types of threats caused by the environment, technology,
people, organizations and politics. Alternatively, it involves all available resources,
particularly those from a risk management entity (person, staff, organization).
The internal audit is independent, objective and it is designed to add value and improve the organization’s operations, helping it to achieve their goals by means of providing a systematic and well-organized focus to assess and improve. An internal audit assesses objectively the risk management that a company is facing and helps to identify gaps, deficiencies and possible risks attached to information policies, processes and technology during stable and changing times of the business; and it recommends improvements. Objectivity is essential to conduct a high-quality internal audit, in other words, the audit needs to focus on the company’s best interest and not on individual’s interests. This provides a
new glance at how things can be achieved instead of accepting conventional knowledge
and old habits. The internal audit is a powerful tool that helps managing threats in order
to achieve success for an organization.
