Control Risks is a global risk consultancy. We help some of the most influential organisations in the world to understand and manage the risks and opportunities of operating globally, particularly in complex and challenging markets. Our unique combination of services, our geographical reach and the trust our clients place in us ensure we can help them to effectively solve their problems and realise new opportunities in a dynamic and volatile world. With almost 3,000 professionals working across five continents and 37 offices worldwide, we provide a broad range of services to help our clients be successful.
At the centre of its Integrity business, Control Risks has extensive expertise and experience in assessing fraud and corruption risks and ensuring that internal controls and other compliance measures are risk-based and adequate for each client’s particular profile, according with global best practice and regulatory guidance. From prevention to timely detection and effective response, we aim to mitigate reputational, financial and regulatory risks stemming from financial crime. Our approach to risk and compliance assessment is both contextualised and data-driven, deploying advanced data analytics, which compliments the work typically undertaken by law firms for their clients.
We typically assist clients in:
- understanding and measuring external sources of risk – country, sector, business partnership and opportunity, supply chain, go-to-market channels, reliance on third parties
- understanding and measuring the effectiveness of anti-corruption and compliance frameworks to prevent, detect and respond to instances of fraud and corruption – assessing accounting systems, policies, procedures and controls, transaction processing and payment systems, transaction and control testing
- Designing, implementing and monitoring effective, risk-based compliance and loss-prevention frameworks
