BDO increases lead in AIM Advisers Rankings Guide 2018

BDO has extended its lead of UK AIM clients with 149 clients, after gaining four clients since July 2018, according to research from Advisor Rankings.

Following BDO is KPMG which lost four clients, taking the firm down to a total of 126.

Grant Thornton, PwC and Deloitte remained in 3rd, 4th and 5th position respectively.

The findings also show that BDO is first for the basic materials sub-category, with 26 clients, consumer goods with 11 clients, consumer services with 17 clients and oil and gas with 22 clients.

In the AIM 50 rankings, PwC has maintained a lead with 12 clients despite losing one since July. Deloitte also lost a client which now makes it joint second with KPMG - both firms now have eight clients each.

The Advisor Rankings Guide commented on AIM UK 50: “Despite the numeric gains, Crowe was unable to improve on seventh place. KPMG moved into a share of the silver medal position, albeit because of the Deloitte loss.”

Advisor Rankings show BDO increase its lead of the consumer goods sector. This was due to its appointment by Real Good Food. Furthermore with consumer services BDO built on their lead through new mandates from Bonhill Group and 7digital group.
