Advanced risk analytics

At Moore Stephens we are specialized in the analysis of data on the presence of unusual transactions that could represent risks such as process, business partner, payment, compliance and fraud risks. Through our libraries of rules we can perform risk scans on complete data populations and obtain actionable risk insights from data sets such as accounting data, payment information, master data and event/change logs. We report our results through interactive dashboards that enable further visual insights and facilitate the risk disposal process. Our risk analytics tools can also be used to quantify damages. Through our partners we have access to machine learning and text mining techniques.

Interview skills

We have advanced interview skills to get the right confessions at the right time.
