Abdul Iqbal

 Deputy Head of Internal Audit

I am an experienced internal audit professional with over 13 years of proven Internal Audit (financial, compliance and operational), Risk and Controls experience across multiple industries and geographies (over 25 countries and 6 continents across the world). I have managed and worked as part of diverse teams of internal auditors. I have the ability to think outside the box when discussing potential issues and recommendations with auditees and can communicate succinctly and clearly with all levels of organisation. I strongly believe that an effective internal audit function not only serves to identify potential risks and control weaknesses but more importantly serves as the management’s eyes & ears and lends support to the strategy making process which affects businesses internally as well as externally (i.e. works as a consultant to the business, in pursuit of driving efficiencies without diluting the controls environment). At the same time building relationships with the business in order for them to feel that they can bring their control and risk issues to you for assistance in resolving these.
