Webinar recap - The Future of Audit in Asia-Pacific

Financial audit is the foundation on which trust and integrity are built into financial markets around the world. However, the profession in Asia-Pacific faces a decisive moment and the public interest is at stake.

Against a backdrop of shifting market expectations, Mazars released an independent report titled The future of audit: market view. The report highlights ‘standout findings’ and myths about audit with more than 500 responses from 12 countries.

Inspired by the report, this webinar aims to take the pulse of Asia-Pacific market’s view on the expectations and future direction of audit, inviting stakeholders to consider necessary changes for its evolution.

On 9 September 2021, a total of 393 participants attended our webinar featuring our in-house audit leaders and speakers from Essilor, Publicis Groupe, and Medi Lifestyle.

We are excited to reveal the report, ‘The Future of Audit in APAC’ which will provide you with valuable insights into the audit needs and perceptions in the region.

Alongside hearing from our diverse audit speakers on the evolution of audit to meet the expectations of financial markets, we introduced a quantitative interactive poll during the webinar to gather the opinion of our APAC audit users and decision makers and have a fresh regional perspective on audit realities, the state of our profession and its future direction.

This report also summarises the key findings from the poll with appropriate comparisons to the global study, to better understand the expectations concerning auditing services in APAC today.
