Who We Are

Founded in 2013, The Shard (Pty) Ltd is a young, experienced and dynamic 100% black owned consulting firm based in South Africa. We provide a unique combination of professional services including internal audit, actuarial and accounting.

Internal Audit

The Shard strives to improve the effectiveness of risk management, control & governance processes, we seek to use expertise to enhance the internal audit scope and elevate the internal audit function in the organisations we serve.


The actuaries at The Shard translate complex information into meaningful results to ensure our clients make informed decisions and create financial wellness.


The accountants and actuaries at The Shard work together to deliver on the requirements of the financial sector focusing on IFRS 17
and IFRS 9. For the first time accountants and actuaries are talking to each other as opposed to talking at each other in the delivery of the project.

The Shard is a Level One (1) Contributor, and has 135% B-BBEE procurement recognition.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a consulting business known for enduring work in internal audit, actuarial consulting, accounting and tax.

We believe this can be achieved through understanding our client’s business and their needs, coupled with effective communication and management to enable us to provide sound business advice tailored to meet the unique needs of their business.
