Deloitte UK has appointed Zahir Bokhari as head of the banking and capital markets audit business within the firm’s financial services group.
Bokhari has more than 20 years of experience with Deloitte, particularly in audit, assurance and advisory services for retail banking and capital markets.
Bokhari was previously a senior banking audit partner and has knowledge of reporting requirements, helping financial institutions implement IFRS and conducting risk reviews.
Deloitte UK head of financial services Russell Collins said Bokhari’s appointment comes at a demanding time for the financial services industry, particularly in light of the changing regulatory and accounting landscape.
“[Bokhari’s] wealth of experience and knowledge will play an integral role in guiding Deloitte’s clients through these changes as the industry continues to evolve,” Collins said.
