Deloitte names new head for UK banking and capital markets audit business

Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has strengthened its financial services practice with the appointment of Zahir Bokhari as head of the UK banking and capital markets audit business.

Zahir brings over 20 years’ experience with Deloitte to the role, having provided audit, assurance and advisory services to numerous listed clients in the retail banking, inter-dealer brokers and capital markets sectors in his previous capacity as senior banking audit partner.

He has extensive knowledge of reporting requirements, and has helped many financial institutions with their implementation of IFRS, in addition to working with regulators in conducting skilled persons and specific risk reviews.

Russell Collins, head of the UK financial services practice at Deloitte, commented: “Zahir’s appointment comes at a demanding time for the financial services industry, particularly in light of the changing regulatory and financial accounting landscape. His wealth of experience and knowledge will play an integral role in guiding Deloitte’s clients through these changes as the industry continues to evolve.”

Zahir Bokhari added: “These are challenging times for all financial services companies, with significant demand for audit, assurance and advisory services. I look forward to taking on this role and helping our clients to address these issues, whilst driving Deloitte’s banking and capital markets audit business forward.”
