Manifold Advisory Partner’s Expansion Plans in Australia and New Zealand

We are delighted to have hired 15 new partners in the Southern Hemisphere, 13 of them from EY’s Australasian practices.

Manifold Advisory Partner’s Role in the Auditing Environment
Audit quality is critical to the success of companies and their investors, and the economy. Audit practices must be robust and compliant with the applicable standards and rules. Audit practices rely on skilled teams with deep expertise and insight. We partner with audit firms to provide non-audit services that support audit teams – such as data analytics, regulatory advice, technology, and risk and compliance services.
We try to partner with the best people and organizations in the world to tackle the biggest problems. Our ambition at Manifold Advisory Partner is to be the leading global consulting firm with a truly global network and a culture of excellence and collaboration.
