Internal Audit’s primary mission is to provide assurance to the Board of Directors and Executive Management that its businesses are well controlled and meeting strategic, operational and risk management objectives. The team engages senior leaders across the firm’s business units (e.g., investment management, sales, trading, operations, risk management, finance, legal and compliance) to understand and identify relevant risks, independently evaluate the effectiveness of key processes and advise on the design of control environment best practices. Internal Audit’s work builds confidence that will meet its obligations to clients, shareholders, employees and other stakeholders.
Our Audit Teams “At a Glance”
With teams in the US, Europe, and Asia, the Business Audit Team performs audits covering all business units, including investment and asset management, risk management, operations, finance, and legal and compliance.
The Technology Audit Team, also in the US, Europe and Asia, performs regional and global audits covering business applications (i.e., via business-integrated reviews) and infrastructure components such as databases, operating systems, data centers and messaging platforms.
Strategy, Analytics & Operations (SAO)
Supporting the entire Audit infrastructure is the SAO function, which manages the strategic planning process, implements process innovations, and ensures consistent execution of audit methodology. SAO also drives continuous improvement through the use of in-depth data mining and analysis in support of audit controls testing. It maintains independence from other audit teams by reporting directly to the Global Head of Audit and does not participate in traditional audit reviews or issues management.
