About our team

We are a small yet rapidly growing team of about 30 people, sitting in PwC’s wider Banking and Capital Markets (B&CM) business.
We assist a wide range of clients, from those considering securitisations or structured finance transactions for the first time, through to experienced repeat issuers. The work we do includes:
  • Transactions work across different due diligence work streams, liaise closely with our client, their legal advisers and the lead managers on the transaction;
  • Audit - understand complex structures, assess the required level of audit evidence and manage a team on a day-to-day basis to deliver audit work on asset-backed finance companies;
  • Accounting advice - assess the impact a proposed structure has on the accounting from the perspective of the seller and the acquirer;
  • Advisory - help to scope our work to address specific client issues or concerns, leveraging the knowledge of the team and the wider firm
We also actively work with regulators and industry bodies across the world to promote a better understanding of the securitisation and structured finance industry.
