We are excited to introduce the latest partner for our Investors’ Academy, BDO International. BDO International is a worldwide professional services network of public accounting firms which serves national and international clients.

As of 2015, BDO has member firms in 151 countries, employing around 60,000 partners and staff in 1,328 offices throughout the world, making it the sixth largest accounting firm in the UK. BDO was founded in 1963. In 2014, the firm reported revenues of US$7.02bn.

We are honoured to be working with the team at BDO to provide accounting insights for early stage investors. While many members of the team will be contributing to this project, we are happy to announce that Derek Neil, Corporate Finance Partner at BDO, will be spearheading the content production for our Academy.

Our thanks go out to all of the BDO team members who have agreed to support this effort, and who will be on hand to answer your questions.
