Financial services

Centred on London and Edinburgh, the UK financial services industry has seen some seismic changes over the past few years with even more to come.

Our financial services specialists in both cities have the knowledge and experience to advise clients on all aspects of their business, to adapt to these changes and to grow their organisation. Our in-house staff have a wealth of financial services industry experience including financial reporting, FCA compliance and client money regulation.

75%

Scott-Moncrieff has provided reporting accountant advice on over 75% of all VCT mergers across the UK.

Scott-Moncrieff’s connection with financial services goes back many years, as you would expect from a firm with such a rich heritage in Edinburgh. As a result, our network of connections in the financial services industry is excellent and we have a wide range of clients in a sector which tends to be associated with larger accountancy practices.

Our Moore Stephens colleagues in London have a strong financial services group too with over 300 FCA-regulated clients including private equity firms, brokers, corporate finance firms, fund managers, venture capital firms, asset managers and advisers and insurance entities. The team is the current holder of Complinet’s ‘Best regulatory accountancy firm’ award.
