Forensic accounting services
Our forensic accounting experts ensure all matters are accurately and comprehensively quantified and resolved.
What we do
Our forensic accounting, investigation and business income experts provide astute, independent financial analysis to insurers, reinsurers and captive insurance companies to ensure claims are accurately quantified and resolved. We analyse the difficult financial components of insurance claims, uncovering the evidence to measure the full financial impact of any business interruption loss.
Independent and trusted advisers to insurance, legal and corporate clients.
We are experts in quantifying business interruption losses — ensuring we substantiate the financial basis of the claim, verify underlying assumptions and provide reports with our findings.
Our reports are relied upon as the basis to settle claims and assist with any subsequent recovery actions.
Services include quantification of the loss of profit, identification of increased costs and savings and verification and application of adjustments, where required.
Our team is experienced in quantifying cyber business interruption losses. We assess both first-party and contingent third-party losses arising from a range of cyber incidents including ransom, cyber theft and supply chain failures.
Corporate crime and employee fidelity
Our experts undertake investigations into the circumstances leading to an alleged fraud, provide recommendations for strengthening internal controls and review the possible avenues for recovery.
We assist insurance, legal professionals and the police in civil and criminal proceedings by providing concise expert reports, financial analysis and loss quantification, and focused investigations.
