Shermeen Kazmi Director London +44 (0)20 7865 2284

I have over 16 years’ experience in the audit industry and have managed audits of financial services clients including insurance brokers, investment trusts and asset managers. I am a dedicated financial services specialist, with experience across the financial services industry and FCA regulated businesses, including Client Asset (CASS) assurance engagements.

I act as a technical and quality assurance specialist, primarily on CASS assurance engagements and am currently responsible for independent technical clearance of CASS audit reports under SUP 3.10. I also look after the risk management of CASS assurance engagements and provide technical support on regulatory (including CASS) queries for the firm’s regulated audit clients.

As part of my role, I enjoy working with my team and clients to better understand the regulatory and technical challenges associated with different business models in various financial sectors and industries.

Additionally, I serve on the ICAEW CASS working party and also meet regularly with the FCA to discuss CASS matters. I also enjoy taking part in industry and ICAEW CASS conferences and events by contributing to the auditor panels.  

Outside of work I like to travel, read and spend time with my family including my three girls who keep me extremely busy, entertained and challenged.
