KPMG's Audit Committee Institute

Switzerland’s first platform to provide members with resources and facilitate networking between members of different boards of directors.

Switzerland’s first platform for audit committee members.

What is the Audit Committee Institute?

The activity as a Board member in an environment of increasing regulation, risks and complexity requires a high degree of knowledge, competence and experience. KPMG's Audit Committee Institute (ACI) supports you as a Board member or member of the Audit Committee to meet these requirements.

We observe and track legal developments and initiatives, self-regulatory activities by industry stakeholders as well as major international trends and developments in three core areas: corporate governance; risk management & compliance, and corporate reporting.

The ACI provides valuable input on how to deal with the challenges encountered in your position, through a newsletter and publication of global surveys, and an opportunity to be in direct contact with technical experts and fellow Board members of Swiss companies at ACI events.

If you would like more information about the ACI or are interested in becoming a member, please contact us:


Philipp Hallauer, Head of National Quality & Risk Management, Head of KPMG‘s Audit Committee Institute
