Risk Advisory Services


Harsh is a Partner in the Melbourne Risk Advisory team. With more than 18 years’ experience in audit, assurance, risk, and compliance management, within the financial services industry including banking and capital markets, asset management and superannuation.

Harsh has collaborated with many well-known organisations to build and deliver multiple audit, assurance, risk, and compliance projects.

He recognises that many organisations are undertaking various technological and digital projects, in anticipation of, or in response to the evolution or disruption of business models and customer expectations. These projects are of strategic significance and require a substantial financial commitment and can be unprecedented. Harsh understands the importance of partnering with a knowledgeable expert to ensure confidence in the delivery of these projects and areas requiring attention or course correction.

His strength lies in helping clients with their risk, governance and compliance challenges, by developing fit-for-purpose, cost effective solutions that are highly effective and integrated across all layers of the organisation.
