About UKFraud

We are an independent and specialist consultancy that delivers fraud risk consulting services, risk strategy and operational reviews by our fraud risk consultants. Our team helps businesses to make improvements and innovate in the way that our clients approach and deal with risk. The team that will help you will include people who will diagnose the issues that you face in your business, and develop a programme of work that will transform losses.

Projects may not necessarily involve major change, as often small changes in management direction, data analytics, processes or the way systems are used to detect or identify risk will make a major difference to the underlying business performance.
Set up in 2006, the business has always focused on making a dramatic difference - which generally leads to major financial performance improvement, that will also be visible very soon after the assignment.

The team that you will see, will be experienced and respected industry leaders and managers. Many of our consultants have at least 20 years' in-depth knowledge and understanding of risk and fraud with some very interesting and varied specialities, and across many sectors. Clients will always see the benefits of sound advice and swift, real-world implementation - The fees will always be justifiable and clients do not see inexperienced consultants.

Our clients trust our delivery focus, our pragmatism, our core problem solving and our vitality and vision.
