Kevin Rollo

Partner, Third Party Assurance, PwC United Kingdom

I am an audit partner in PwC's Asset and Wealth Management team. I focus on the delivery of non-audit assurance and advisory services over a range of subject areas including investment management operations, investment servicing, CASS and investment performance, as well as leading the financial audit of a number of our listed audit clients.

Over my career to date with PwC I have had the fortune to experience working across the whole asset management value chain having worked with asset managers, investment funds, insurance companies, platform providers and outsourced administrators. I spent the formative years of my career based in our Edinburgh office specialising in financial audit based, eventually leading PwC Scotland’s asset management and funds team. In 2013 I moved to London to lead our Stakeholder Assurance practice, focused on non-audit assurance. More recently I have overseen the integration of that team into our AWM national audit practice, designed to ensure we are fully equipped to respond to the broader audit and assurance needs of our clients that the evolution of audit requires.

I have a passion for problem solving and providing practical solutions to clients and have been able to indulge this passion delivering on a wide range of different types of work, with clients ranging from start-up technology providers to some of the largest listed businesses in this sector.

My specialist experience includes the following;

  • Operational Controls – I am the engagement leader on a number of Controls Reports for traditional, alternative and real estate asset managers, peer to peer lenders, platforms and wealth managers. This work includes assessing the overall control environment of these businesses, as well as providing opinions on the effective design and operation of these controls (SSAE 18, AAF 01/06, ISAE 3402). I am also experienced in the provision of advisory services in relation to the design and implementation of controls in the investment management sector.
  • CASS – Having a number of years' experience leading the CASS audits of investment managers I also specialise in advising on the design and implementation of appropriate risk and control framework around the CASS rulebook in both in-house and outsourced environments.
  • Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) verification - providing GIPS verification services to a range of sizes of investment managers.
  • Financial Audit - I have been the engagement leader for a range of fund and corporate audits and am currently focused on leading the audit of listed Investment Trusts.
