""Very good topics and helpful to understand different views.""
Senior Operations & Financial Auditor, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank

Internal Audit is constantly changing and this provides both challenges and opportunities for bank audit functions – with a focus on finding an organisation’s equilibrium between best practise, regulatory requirements and supporting leadership to meet commercial goals  in an increasingly competitive environment.

The Chief Audit Executive/Chief Internal Auditor role is challenged to take advantage of these changes and apply new styles of service delivery and ways of working post Covid within an environment of negative  internal audit professional environment’s and press coverage.

Successful banks and financial institutions and their CAE/CIA leadership will gain significantly from these changes in the audit service delivery as part of the overall value proposition of the firm.

""There was continuous discussion in a friendly atmosphere which made it possible to exchange thoughts with all the participants and we were in full review of innovation and audit and its advantages and challenges it faces. ""
Senior Audit Manager, Japanese-USA Bank, New York
