BDO invests in financial services team

Chris Meyrick joins BDO’s Scottish team as a partner focusing on the financial services (FS) sector and audit. He has spent more than 20 years in the industry, with experience supporting a wide range of businesses ranging from large multinationals to smaller, owner managed businesses, reflecting Scotland’s position as a leading financial centre. Chris will be based across Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Commenting on his appointment, Chris says:

“Financial services firms have demonstrated considerable resilience over the last two years despite the unprecedented uncertainty brought on by the pandemic and Brexit. The sector makes a significant contribution to the local market and will play a key role in the economic recovery of Scotland post-pandemic. 

“I look forward to using my knowledge and experience working with both new and existing clients as they recover from the disruption of the last two years and look ahead to future growth and innovation. This is a really exciting time to be joining BDO, and I am looking forward to getting stuck in to recruiting to grow our team and further develop our financial services practice in Scotland.”

Neil Fung-On, Head of Financial Services at BDO, commented: 

“Chris’ appointment reflects an exciting period of growth for BDO across the UK and in Scotland. Having a dedicated financial services partner with Chris’ experience demonstrates our commitment to the sector, its importance to the local Scottish economy and the increasingly complex needs of our FS clients. It is a pleasure to be able to welcome Chris to the team.”

BDO has made significant investments in its financial services offering over the last twelve months. The firm has appointed and promoted five new dedicated FS partners and now operates as a team of almost 600 people. 

As part of this growth, BDO recently announced it had entered a new joint venture with remediation specialist, Regulatory Finance Solutions (RFS), known as BDO Regulatory Services. The move will see the two firms combine forces to service the financial services remediation market. 

Since January, BDO has appointed 24 external and 46 internal individuals as partner across the firm.
