Construction and Real Estate are one of the highest in profit and risk

March 04, 2020

The dynamics of the Construction and Real Estate industry are always evolving. Increased pressure on the industry from the impact of the current economic environment, incidences of fraud and increasing scrutiny from regulators, investors and lenders mean that companies are increasingly focusing on controls within their operational infrastructure.

The sector has been instrumental in driving growth for both the local and wider global economy for many decades. Real estate and infrastructure projects form a major part of many businesses in the region, with significant investment and operational costs dominating their balance sheets.

Ineffective processes, poor controls and a lack of governance are no longer acceptable. Boards, audit committees, analysts, regulators and executive management are demanding greater accountability, transparency and management of enterprise risk.

Our Strategy is to help our clients to review their approach, refine their controls and become more agile in their approach to navigating the fast-changing real estate and construction market.

It is beneficial to companies to streamline their operations, identify and mitigate risk, and build better customer relationships to help deliver better performance and increased return on investment.
