FORENSIC ACCOUNTING EXPERTS
Our forensic accounting services are led by Dr Anna Kurtovic, an
internationally recognised fraud examiner with a PhD in accounting and qualifications in advanced investigation and interviewing techniques
Expert investigators of numbers and peopleForensic accounting and fraud investigations are most effectively conducted when you understand the numbers and the people who might have manipulated them. Our team has advanced qualifications in forensic accounting and in interviewing people to detect deception.
Advanced software for forensic accountingOnce our team has taken a holistic view of your situation, they will apply advanced analytical and statistical modelling techniques and deploy artificially intelligent investigative software. Our data analysis techniques are more thorough than is common in forensic accounting because we use your full dataset to scrutinise transactions. Because of the processing load of working with all the data involved, it’s more common to work from samples of data, though this is less accurate. Working from a complete set of data better equips us to form a hypothesis and work with greater certainty towards an evidence-based conclusion.
Effective but discreet investigationWe know how to discreetly achieve a complete understanding of your organisation’s needs, and of the environment in which it operates. We can quickly work out what information we need and whom we need to talk to. This way, we can be cost-effective and efficient, which will minimise disruption to your operation.
Actionable reportsA forensic accountant’s report is useful only when the right people in your organisation and relevant stakeholders can understand it and act on it. We take care to make sure our findings are delivered in the format you asked for — with every question answered clearly. Our forensic accounting conclusions are prepared as expert reports and can therefore be used in litigation and to support expert witness testimony. Our experts are always available for follow-up questions because we want our investigations to make it possible for you to take action.
