Audit Essentials: Hotspots for the Regulator

This paper was written by Naomi Kewley SSA™ SSAud™, Managing Director, Peak Super Audits

Part II of the Audit Essentials series on ‘Documenting the Audit’ focuses on hotspots for the Regulator.

Throughout the paper, Naomi extends her consideration of the audit file to a range of investments that present special risk for the fund (and hence also for the auditor) including:

  • Collectibles and personal use assets
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Derivatives
  • Investment in unrelated, unlisted entities post Cam & Bear v McGoldrick.
