KPMG has released a whitepaper which leverages the insights and perspectives shared at a forum which brought together nine internal audit directors from leading financial institutions including Barclays, BMO Financial, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Bank of Nova Scotia, Morgan Stanley, Lloyds TSB, RBS and provided the opportunity for the group to identify key business drivers for change in today’s global financial services marketplace.
Key discussion points were around:
– Integrated Assurance Model
– Continuous Auditing and Technology
– Internal Audit’s Role
– Balancing Stakeholder Expectations
– Risk-Based Approach
– The Right People
The whitepaper here also highlights key action steps for Internal Audits to take to help meet expectations in 2010 and beyond.
