Audit Of DFSA Authorized Firms

KPI is a DFSA Registered Auditor - a distinction earned after a successful appraisal by Dubai Financial Services Authority, through rigorous reviews conducted on our systems, workflows and capabilities.


Authorized Firms Registered in DIFC and regulated by DFSA are required to be fully compliant with the statutory/external audit requirements in accordance with the DFSA Rules and Regulations.
