What we do


In business consulting finance we help our clients capitalise on opportunities to drive profitable growth, rethink finance operating models, and reap the potential of financial data. Today, finance functions have to look at how the whole organization — and beyond — impacts the bottom line. This means challenging the status quo, applying creativity and innovation, and transforming the finance operating model.


EY is at the forefront of finance operating model change and widely recognised as a market leader in this space. In working with our clients, we help them with transforming the finance operating model into an agile function, aligned to, and supporting the organisational strategy. To make this happen, enabling technology is instrumental to success.
