4 Crowe Horwath LLP What Sets Crowe Apart Beyond industry experience and impeccable credentials, the Crowe approach to client service emphasizes three crucial characteristics: Direct senior-level involvement.

An Exceptional Client Experience At Crowe we continually focus on delivering the highest levels of service to our clients.

6 Crowe Horwath LLP Audit Services Choosing the right professional services firm means you can be confident you are receiving objective, credible information to help guide your critical management decisions. Crowe Insurance Industry Audit Services Statutory and GAAP financial statement audits SSAE 16 audits Benefit plan audits Crowe Insurance Industry Assurance Services Medicare cost plan agreed-upon procedures Sarbanes-Oxley/Model Audit Rule consulting Forecasts and projections Agreed-upon procedures 6 Based on our track record of providing comprehensive and cost-effective audit solutions, Crowe enjoys an excellent reputation both within the insurance industry itself and among regulators. In 2013, A.M. Best Co. listed Crowe in the top tier of property and casualty auditors, ranking Crowe 11th among all independent accounting and auditing firms in the United States and Canada, based on total property and casualty loss reserves held by its clients. Crowe ranks number 11 among all U.S. and Canadian accounting and audit firms serving property and casualty insurance providers. Source: A.M. Best Co., July 2013 Competence, Consistency, and Objectivity At Crowe we begin by seeking to understand your company, your marketplace, your industry, and your operations. Crowe maintains high audit proficiency through consistency of staff and continued training, and we incorporate innovative technology solutions to enhance audit efficiency, facilitate the process, and reduce disruptions. These secure technology tools help expedite the transfer and analysis of large amounts of financial data through the use of shared databases, an automated work paper system, Web-enabled project tracking, and secure data sharing. Crowe strives to maintain the highest levels of professional audit quality. To achieve this quality level, the firm has developed an internal quality control system led by the assurance professional practice group, which is independent from the personnel in the audit practice. In addition, for audits of private companies, we undergo an independent peer review once every three years. For public companies, we are subject to annual inspection by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), as established by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of Because we serve as auditor for more than the legislatively established threshold of 100 public companies, we are inspected by the PCAOB annually instead of triennially.
