Beaton450 is our ‘league table of league tables’ which covers the growth, footprints and M&A activities of the world’s largest professional service firms in accountancy, audit, tax, consulting engineering, environmental services, law and management consulting.
Updated annually, the Beaton450 provides a comprehensive snapshot of the world’s largest and most influential business-related professions. These professions serve all parts of the economy and represent a growing proportion of GDP in major countries.
This league table is the first in the world to examine professional service firms’:
- Extent of globalisation
- Growth strategies
- Worldwide alliances.
Deal Monitor tracks recent mergers and acquisitions among the Beaton450 firms, shedding light on the patterns of corporate activity and the strategic intent displayed in these deals.
The Beaton450 report is circulated worldwide to the major media serving these firms, their clients, professional societies and interested academic institutions. For information on the Beaton450 and Deal Monitor please contact Eric Chin.
