Integritas is the latin word which means integrity and is our core value. It is what we believe in, what we expect from every member of our team, and reflected in how we serve clients. Integrity is also reflected in how we advise our clients – we believe in providing you with an educated viewpoint based on our experience which may not necessarily always be what you want to hear. However, we provide a premium service and with that what you should demand of your advisors and what we commit to providing you.
Integritas Advisors was formed to fill an underserviced area. In our experience many companies may have little to no experience in successfully navigating through the complexities of these unique transactions or events. These types of transactions or events are incremental to the challenges of operating a business, stretch resources, and typically have a compressed timeline. Poor execution can have dire consequences from shareholder value erosion to significant reputational damage to the company and management. A further complication is that your auditor is required to comply with very restrictive auditor independence rules which effectively prohibit the auditor from “acting as management” and “auditing its own work”. Since we do not provide assurance services, we are not constrained by independence rules and are able to fully guide and advise you. We have successfully helped client’s in these situations many times over.
Our services are focused in the following areas:
Many of these events involve different departments within an organization. We are experienced in leading these projects and can also offer our project management skills to help ensure projects are well planned, effectively managed, and successfully executed.
