Assurance

assurance

Our Assurance group provides assurance on the financial performance and operations of your business. We can also help your business improve its external financial reporting and adapt to new regulatory requirements such as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

In Luxembourg, PwC is the leading professional services firm employing around 960 professionals in its Audit & Assurance Services.

 

Statutory and contractual audit

An audit of financial information may be required not only by the applicable laws and regulations, but also contractually (loan agreements, JV agreements, shareholders' agreement, clients' internal policy...). It provides assurance on the truth and fairness of an entity’s financial information under various reporting frameworks, such as Luxembourg GAAP, IFRS and US GAAP.

We can also assist our clients during the life cycle of their products and support them during each key event (review of carried interest, contributions in kind, interim dividends, review of reporting, liquidation, review of interim financial information,...). Our Alternative clients reflect the diversity of the Luxembourg market: whether they are regulated (RAIF, SIF, SICAR, Part II, etc.) or not, they may be open-ended or closed-ended, and they can have any investment profile with a focus on Real Estate, Private Equity, Infrastructure, Debt or Hedge Funds.

Risk Assurance Services

Today's business environment is more complex than ever. More automated. More connected. More virtual. With these advances comes opportunity, but also risk.

Our Risk Assurance Services team works with companies across all three lines of defence:

Internal Audit

We can help provide a fully outsourced IA function or co-source services to support the ManCo and local regulations. We can review your policies and procedures, and benchmark and evaluate the effectiveness of your Internal Audit function.

Operational Management and Governance

We can help validate the completeness and accuracy of board and management reporting, or reporting through complex structures (at SPVs or property manager, property accountant, fund manager and asset manager levels). We can perform analytics, analysis and KPIs on your data to give in-depth insight into your organisation and Alternative Investment portfolio using visualisation tools and identifying efficiencies. We can also provide control reports (such as SOC 1/2) or customised reports on specific processes and controls.
