THE London Stock Exchange is to replace PwC as its auditor with EY, the first time the exchange has changed auditors since it listed in 2001.

In December, the exchange announced it was putting the audit out to tender "in light of the increasing diversification, scale and reach of [the group], and also in line with good corporate governance"

The process was overseen by the LSE's audit committee, while the appointment will take place shortly after the completion of the audit of its consolidated accounts for the year ended 31 March

The appointment of EY by the board will take place shortly after the completion of the audit of its consolidated accounts for the year ended 31 March 2014.
