Advisory to Boards
Board directors of U.S. public companies operate under conditions of intense regulatory, investor, and public scrutiny on an uncertain roadmap. To a degree almost unimaginable 30 years ago, they are held accountable for oversight, regulatory reporting, executive compensation, and succession and risk planning. EisnerAmper's team provides boards, board committees and individual directors with financial insight and specialized analysis, so they can successfully navigate multiple responsibilities and provide the strategic guidance expected of them.
We advise boards of directors of public and private companies of all sizes, not-for-profit organizations, and private equity-owned companies. Within those entities, board working committees such as finance, governance, risk, audit and compensation engage us to help with difficult and complex accounting issues and operational audits. Our services include internal audits and external audits, SEC reporting and accounting, and tax services. Our approach to SOX compliance is designed to support the internal control and financial statement assertion requirements mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We are also well-equipped to advise on issues of emerging interest, such as independent boards for hedge funds.
Clients who work with EisnerAmper have come to expect to work with experienced financial professionals who have hands-on experience with the issues and governance benchmarks of interest to boards; who work from a collaborative, relationship-oriented ethos; and who, in some cases, have themselves served in senior operating capacities in public companies.
Clients also benefit from EisnerAmper’s longstanding relationships with the board-relevant committees of professional organizations such as the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, AICPA’s Center for Audit Quality, and the National Association of Corporate Directors.
As one demonstration of our ongoing commitment to board clients, EisnerAmper has, for the past 6 years, produced an annual board of directors survey, which gathers and presents insights about the most pressing concerns of directors today.
