E&Y strengthens financial services arm
The financial services arm of Ernst & Young has been strengthened with the addition of 15 new business advisers from defunct firm Andersen.
The new partners have joined E&Y’s financial services practice in Scotland, which provides services to a number of Scottish banks, including Royal Bank of Scotland, HBOS and Clydesdale Bank.
With the additions, E&Y’s business advisory arm is now the biggest of its kind in the country. The unit is headed by Eamonn Rice, formerly partner in charge of Andersen’s Scottish financial services group.
Douglas Nisbet, regional managing partner with Ernst & Young in Scotland and Northern Ireland, commented: ‘This major expansion reinforces our commitment to serving the financial services community in an efficient and vibrant manner.’
