Our global approach
Globalisation is shaping our world: it’s expanding horizons as trade, technology and investment increasingly connect countries and companies around the globe; and it’s compressing time and distance as people and products move – and ideas spread – faster than ever before.
At EY, we have long thought that globalisation is one of the defining issues of our time. Our response has been to transform our organisation so that we keep in step with the changing needs of our clients and our people.
Our clients need integrated, cross-border service and the same high quality wherever they do business around the world. Our people want to build careers in an organisation that’s global in its outlook and inclusive in its approach.
Our global structure
Our structure is composed of the Executive and Regions. The Executive includes our global leadership, governance bodies and our four geographic Areas. Working together they oversee our global strategy, brand, business planning, investments and priorities. Our four service lines are represented and enabled by the four functions of Markets, Operations, People and Risk.
Our 28 Regions are grouped under four geographic Areas: Americas; Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA); Asia-Pacific; and Japan.
This structure is streamlined allowing us to make decisions quickly, execute our strategy and provide exceptional client service wherever in the world our clients do business.
Our global structure means we can respond faster than our competitors. We can access the right people and assemble high-performing teams to deliver exceptional client service worldwide.
So we’re not merely a loose collection of national practices – we are a global organisation, unified in our approach.
