Audit advisory services with a business focus that will benefit organizations of all sizes
In today’s climate of increasing economic complexity and constantly changing regulations, assessing and managing risk is more important than ever. The SEC and Department of Justice have been critical of internal audit departments and the PCAOB has been critical of Big 4 practices. How do you handle issues such as increased enforcement action and personal liability? How do you make sure that your spending on audits adds value to the business while reducing the cost of compliance and improving your control environment? These are all questions that any company must answer regardless of size or the presence of an organized internal audit department.
Our risk and compliance advisory services
You can approach audit, risk, and compliance purely as a cost or you can view it as an opportunity to increase the value of your company. Aventine Hill Partners’ executive advisory services have a unique approach that focuses on the return on invested capital for your audit and risk management activities. Our Chief Audit Executive (CAE) Advisors and consultants have proven this approach at larger companies and adapted it to benefit any size organization. Our services include assisting with Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) compliance. And, helping you stay current on the COSO risk and control framework and how changing PCAOB rules and regulations may impact your company.
One of CAE Advisors can perform an enterprise risk assessment. Then, help you prioritize your challenges and opportunities to tailor a roadmap that manages your risks, assures compliance, and produces real value above and beyond avoiding fines. The roadmap can include an organization development plan to prioritize the activities of your audit department with a focus on return on invested capital.
- If you do not have an existing internal audit function, our advisors can help you build one through our audit advisory services, including co-sourcing from Aventine Hill Partners’ audit consultants to help control cost.
- If your company has already been subjected to enforcement actions, we can tailor plans to remediate specific issues and help you implement controls to minimize the risk of similar problems in the future.
Aventine Hill Partners’ CAE Advisors will make it easy for companies large and small to manage risk and compliance issues that are unique to them in ways that are cost effective and generate value.
