ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Not your ordinary consultancy
With a history that stretches back as far as 1903, Ernst & Young is one of the Big Four accounting firms in the world today, alongside Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Deloitte and KPMG. The firm does not offer consultancy services in the conventional sense, having sold its consulting arm to Capgemini for $11 million in 2000, but it does provide what it calls advisory services. In other words, it advises companies on effective business strategy but refrains from getting its hands dirty with implementation work. Under this advisory umbrella, EY offers clients actuarial services, business advisory services, business risk services, financial services risk management, fraud investigation and dispute services, and technology and security risk services. Meanwhile, clients can take advantage of the firm’s additional offerings, under its assurance, tax and transaction wings.
While a complete list of Ernst & Young’s clients would undoubtedly be a long and luminous affair, it’s perhaps best to work instead with a representative sample. Clients basically fall into two camps—those where the firm attests to financial statements, and those where it doesn’t. In the former camp are firms of the stature of Amazon, Coca-Cola, Intel, Renault and UBS, while the latter group includes AXA, Citigroup, eBay, Johnson & Johnson and Vivendi.
