Nikhil Torsekar, MBA, PMP's Experience

Manager, Advanced Risk & Compliance Analytics (ARCA)


Partnership; 10,001+ employees; Accounting industry

2013Present (1 year) Chicago

The regulatory environment and the compliance data it requires can pose steep and costly challenges to any business.

Ideally, organizations want to leverage this mountain of data beyond compliance to reduce risk and boost returns. But it’s hard for most companies to do this quickly and efficiently on their own.

That’s where PwC comes in. By helping you create a holistic approach to data analytics we can transform how you meet regulatory needs into actionable, enterprise-wide intelligence.

And we can do it efficiently, allowing you to potentially spend less working with PwC than you’d spend using in-house resources. Your margins could benefit from significant data efficiencies.

In sum, PwC can show you how to put your data to work for the good of your business and your bottom line.
