Here is some information about your host:
In more than 20 years with KPMG, Regina O’Neill has served some of the firm’s largest financial-services clients, mainly investment banks and securities dealers. She has extensive experience in leading attestation engagements, including financial statement audits and regulatory compliance examinations, as well as internal audit strategic-sourcing engagements and projects to evaluate governance processes, risks and controls and to test the operating effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting.
Here are a few select highlights from her professional experience:
- Led the operational audit of the New York branch of a global financial institution. This project involved validating the self-assessment of risks by the branch; evaluating the appropriateness of construction, or the design, of the internal control framework; and assessing the functioning, or operating effectiveness, of that framework.
- Led the corporate governance review of the broker-dealer operations of one of the world’s largest investment banks. The review entailed assessing the bank’s governance structure against that of 10 peer institutions, and then using that analysis to recommend an alternative structure better suited to the growing demands and complexities of the business and regulatory environment.
- Led internal audit strategic-sourcing engagements involving areas such as BSA/AML/OFAC compliance, credit risk management, securitizations, treasury/liquidity management and trading operations.
- Supported the due-diligence review of a global investment bank‘s acquisition of a prime broker, which included account reconciliation support and related process-improvement recommendations.
- Served as the lead partner in assisting a major credit-card issuer in its end-to-end review of processes covered under the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991. This work included improving the client’s documentation to support compliance with both the 1991 act and Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
If you are interested in networking with a leader in the accounting industry, this is the Supper Club for you. Please apply here no later than Friday, November 4, at noon.
