ICAS announces Top 100 Young CAs for 2020

ICAS (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) has announced a list of the Top 100 Young Chartered Accountants (CAs) as part of a global competition

The ICAS Top Young CAs competition is ICAS’ annual showcase of the best and brightest CAs in the world of accounting, finance and business.

The CAs selected in this year’s list all faced an anonymous and rigorous judging process focused on finding young professionals who are outstanding in their field. An overall winner – the One Young CA 2020 – will be chosen from the Top 100 list in October.

ICAS Chief Executive, Bruce Cartwright CA, said: “I would like to congratulate all of the exceptional CAs who made it on to this year’s Top 100 Young CAs list.

“It is a great achievement to make it onto the list and it presents a wonderful chance for these talented young CAs to be recognised by their peers.

“This year’s awards take place against a backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic. The world will need accountants, of all ages, experience and diversity of background, as we navigate the challenging economic and personal impact of this crisis.

“The attributes we highlight in our categories – talent, trust and technology, will help us get there. We applaud the qualities exhibited by these Top 100 CAs aged 35 and under, selected by our panel of expert judges, and indeed many more beyond this group.”

For the 2020 programme, nominations were invited from the CAs themselves and from their peers.

The three categories of technology, trust and talent in the 2020 programme represent the areas of focus for the CA Agenda, ICAS’ thought leadership initiative launched last year.

Sixty-seven CAs were successfully nominated in the talent category, 19 in trust and 14 in technology.

Technology is transforming the accountancy profession and the world in which it operates, and the pace of change is only going to accelerate.

Trust – in accountancy, in business and in society – has become a critical issue in which accountants are stepping up to play a part.

Talent is a theme that runs through all the other issues the profession is facing.
