Case Studies

Risks to achieving strategy:

A business had not pin-pointed all the challenges to the delivery of its strategy.  Natural Risk led a series of consultations (meetings, workshops, briefings) that raised practical understanding of risk management in the business and delivered a specific assessment of risks to achieving its strategic objectives.

A sensitive fraud investigation:

A suspected fraud required a quiet and quick investigation without the alleged suspects being aware.

Using a pretext, Natural Risk addressed the allegations and made other practical control and governance recommendations.

Control at a time of change:

A fast-growing plc recognised the value of independent assurance at a time of great change.  It engaged Natural Risk to provide Internal Audit services focused on board requirements rather than a long-term audit plan.

Accordingly, reported findings have been of direct and immediate value to the business.

Other valuable observations:

A multinational needed independent assessment of financial controls in sites around the world.

Natural Risk visited many sites and reported control weakness but, more valuably, raised other significant observations with the board by being on site and deploying personal experience and professional curiosity.

Fraud response and awareness:

A financial institution wished to develop a Fraud Response Plan but with advice from Natural Risk was able to render the Plan in a more practical and engaging manner as part of a wider ambition to improve fraud risk assessment across the organisation.
