FOUR OUT OF FIVE of the chartered accountants who hold FTSE 100 finance directors are alumni of the Big Four firms.

Research passed onto the Independent on Sunday by industry insiders showed that 58 of the finance chiefs were qualified chartered accountants, of which 46 had previously worked for either PwC, Deloitte, KPMG or EY.

Data analysed by Accountancy Age’s sister publication Financial Director last month revealed that 331 of the 976 executives and non-executives sat on FTSE 100 boards are either accountants or have senior finance experience.
