Australia has a sophisticated financial services sector, boasts a comparatively strong economy and is well positioned as a financial hub in the world's fastest growing region. Yet the sector faces unprecedented challenges, many of which stem from the global financial crisis. The pace of growth has slowed, trust has been eroded – particularly in international markets – and the sector is in a rebuilding phase that will likely continue for some years. Every financial services organisation faces the challenge of re-engaging customers, increasing profitability and identifying opportunities for growth in Australia and globally. That's the work PwC is doing right now.

Who we are

Our teams work across all segments of financial services – commercial banks, non-bank lenders, investment banks, insurers, superannuation funds, asset managers, infrastructure and private equity investors, property groups, advisers and regulators. We operate at a global level to match our clients’ businesses, working with Australian financial services organisations with international operations, and international organisations with operations in Australia.

We have large multi-disciplinary teams who work across all aspects of financial services. Our team members are experts with local and global experience in assurance, tax, strategic advice, transactions, and consulting.
