The big news this quarter relates to Saffery Champness. They have added as many net new clients than all the other 25 top Auditors put together. They added 3 new AIM clients (AFH Financial Group PLC, Conygar Investment Company PLC and Holders Technology PLC) and this added 50% to their total client count.

The other main event has been the collapse in the client market-cap values for all Auditors following the turmoil in the financial markets
