Audit Quality and Transparency
CohnReznick understands the significance of our role in protecting the capital markets and serving our clients. To do so, it is critical that we are transparent to these markets, investors, and regulators. Our ability to act as an impartial, objective, and independent third party is reliant on the trust we have built during our 100 years in existence. We have forged this trust by providing high quality audit and assurance services which have evolved over time.
The CohnReznick 2019 Transparency Report covers our governance, independence, ethical requirements, and compliance with regulatory requirements, as well as monitoring, engagement performance, and talent management. It demonstrates our commitment to maintaining a strong system of controls to achieve the highest quality audits.
We are guided by a set of seven principles that collectively are known by the acronym, PYRAMID. Our seven PYRAMID values serve as a compass for our interactions with clients, colleagues, and the broader community. In serving our clients, our goal is to provide them with forward thinking advisory, assurance, and tax solutions that enable them to achieve their vision. What we do isn’t about us; it’s about the role we play to contribute to a vibrant, functioning capital market.
It is said that trust is built and maintained by many small actions over time. In that spirit, we hope to take another small step in gaining and maintaining our stakeholders’ trust by providing our Audit Quality and Transparency Report.
