CEO Scott Barnes said the move was important to the
firm, with Cape Town’s growing significance as a financial centre.

“Cape Town, Delhi, and Sydney are as important to our future as Edinburgh,
Leeds, Manchester and Bristol,” said Barnes.

Other BDO offices in South Africa are not involved in the merger.
