With global-best digital tools that harness the power of data, analytics and AI, GA&A are delivering smarter, faster and safer outcomes to address current and emerging risks and provide better assurance outcomes for our customers and community. GA&A was recognised as an ABA100 winner for both Risk Management and Business Innovation in The Australian Business Awards 2023.
