Financial Services

We understand the issues and regulatory pressures our Financial Services clients face. The list of challenges is ever growing and changing; IFRS 9, GDPR, Cyber Security, SMCR and MiFID II to name just a few. Finding practical answers to those issues takes more than technical knowledge. It takes real-world experience and a willingness to understand you, your goals and your business. We judge ourselves by how well we effectively add value to our clients.

We are a team of experienced Financial Services specialists with a proven track record of finding the answers that contribute to our clients’ successes. We bring together a huge range of personalities and experience across audit, tax and advisory. We think this is key to delivering the best outcomes for you.

We are an important part of the BDO FS Global network that gives us a presence in every major financial centre and market around the world. Wherever you operate and whenever you need local knowledge, our network will be able to help. 

We use our strong relationships with regulators, to provide invaluable advice to clients. We work closely with key industry bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) Financial Services Faculty. We are also an active stakeholder and influencer in European financial services.

Professional services across Financial Services    

We provide full audit, tax and across the following financial services industry sectors:

Financial Services Advisory

The amount and complexity of regulatory change requires robust business strategies that will stand up to scrutiny. We also provide specialist risk and regulation advisory services to address specific challenges that companies in the sector face.

We also offer Quantitative Risk and Valuation Advisory Services as part of our wider risk service offering.

Technology Risk

Technology is driving change and opportunity in financial services. It also brings with it new risks such as cyber-crime and data protection. We provide a full technology risk and advisory service to ensure your technology risks are managed.

Non-Executive Director Programme:

Being a non-executive director (NED) is tremendously rewarding. Nonetheless, regulatory requirements and the pace of change make the role challenging. Media attention on executive pay, shareholder activism and governance issues mean the role is also becoming more high profile.

We invite you to join BDO’s NED community, which includes a dedicated Financial Services sub-group. Being a part of this community will allow you to meet other NEDs, learn about technical and industry matters, and increase your effectiveness and influence on Boards. Our Financial Services NED community who join us from banks and alternative lenders, asset managers, insurers and capital markets firms will meet regularly. The group will enjoy unique private dining experiences and explore what’s important to you.
