Deloitte: a new member firm in Mongolia opens
Mongolia is a fast-growing market in the Asia Pacific region and with significant natural resources and a growing number of domestic enterprises they require top quality professional services. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited announced recently it has established a new member firm in Mongolia after reaching an agreement with leading local Mongolian professional services firm, Onch Audit.
Onch Audit LLC was founded in January 2004 and has since become a leading firm in the region. The Deloitte Onch LLC office currently employs a staff of 50 with plans to recruit an additional 15 over the coming months
Deloitte: Chief Financial Officers’ (CFOs) Still Worry Over Global Economy
According to the latest Deloitte CFO Survey, there will only be a slight decrease in CFO appetite for M&A activity during the next twelve months. However, that figure had halved since the same quarter a year ago (down to a net 45% from 90%). Overall, concerns about the global economy remain at the forefront of many Chief Financial Officers’ (CFOs) minds.
It wasn’t surprising that optimism hadn’t shifted far from last quarter’s lowest-ever levels and, following the World Bank’s recent downgrade of its global growth forecasts, that position was unlikely to improve in the near future.
Deloitte: personal insolvency figures predicted to top 120,000
Deloitte’s latest Consumer Tracker, a monitor of consumer confidence and spending habits, found that seven per cent of households have seen someone lose their job in the last quarter. Consumers were found to be bearish across a range of indicators with 53% of respondents pessimistic about disposable income, while 28% felt negative about their personal debt and 23% about job security. Traditionally people tend to hold off addressing financial issues during the festive season, preferring to hold off until the New Year.

Deloitte: A Look At What’s Driving Corporate Governance
A new Deloitte report based on a survey of 208 corporate secretaries, analyzes 19 board practice areas among public and non-public companies and explores topics such as governance reform and regulation, risk oversight, corporate responsibility, board meeting practices and committee structures.
The “2011 Board Practices Report” from the Deloitte Center for Corporate Governance and the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals finds that expanding technology use, expectations to be more active in developing corporate strategy, and an emphasis on shareholder engagement are driving the corporate governance agenda.
Deloitte: Spending cut for Premier League
According to analysis by business advisory firm Deloitte, there was a drastic spending cut of 70% on the record level of £225m spent in January 2011 by Premier League clubs.
Some of the key findings from the analysis by Deloitte include the fact that Premier League clubs have committed to around £60m in respect of player transfer fees in January 2012 compared to £225m in 2011 and £30m in 2010.
Spending with overseas clubs accounted for £30m (50%) of Premier League clubs’ gross transfer spending, followed by spending with Premier League clubs (£15m, 25%) and with Football League clubs (£15m, 25%).
