Within our Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Services (CMAAS) business unit, you will advise internationally operating and usually stock-market listed companies in relation to valuations, financial instruments, treasury, accounting and capital-market transactions. Due to changes within these organisations and amendments to IFRS standards and regulatory-reporting rules, our clients regularly encounter issues that require our assistance.

The culture is open, informal and international, and cooperation and teamwork are paramount. A pleasant working environment and professional development are extremely important to us.

Financial Services is an important and growing sector within our Accounting Advisory practice. Within the CMAAS Financial Services group, you will advise bankers and insurers on subjects like IFRS 9, risk management and other relevant legislation.
The Financial Services team focuses specifically on providing advice to banks and insurance companies. You will work in a team of experts in the fields of both accounting and legislation relevant to banks, insurers and bank regulators. You will advise and support clients regarding complex issues such as the implementation of Basel III (CRD IV) and Solvency II, as well as the introduction of IFRS 9 and IFRS 4.
Financial Instruments and Accounting specialists advise clients with regard to reporting and valuation of financial instruments. You will also support PwC auditing teams when examining treasury activities and the statuses of financial instruments in the balance sheet (e.g. loans, equity-capital instruments and derivatives). Financial instruments and the related reporting and valuation rules can be extremely complex. Sometimes you function as an accountant, while at other times you're an advisor again.
