Deloitte is expanding its Insurance Audit and Advisory business in response to the regulatory and MFRS/IFRS accounting changes impacting the insurance sector.

This gives us opportunities for our insurance practitioners to assist our clients in areas such as reporting process and controls design and implementation, operating model, and finance transformation, working closely with actuarial, consulting and risk advisory colleagues.
