KPMG targets risk with new publication

KPMG’S NEW Assure publication focuses on risk and uncertainty management, with an intended audience of CFOs and financial controllers of major organisations.

Corporate communications manager Mark Hamilton said risk and compliance management is one of the firm’s fastest-growing arms, with clients demonstrating a “big appetite” for services in this area.

This demand may lie behind the new magazine, which contains a foreword from UK head of audit Oliver Tant. He described firms as “defenders against the kind of strategies that recently led to the near collapse of the global banking system”, and said there is great opportunity for discussions between finance leaders and audit committees.

Topics examined include the future of audit, sustainable reporting and international accounting standards.
