Ask great questions

What would the world look like if I rode on a beam of light?

It sounds like a question a child might ask. In fact Albert Einstein was 16 years old when the thought occurred to him. This simple idea led Einstein on a journey that changed the course of scientific endeavour and revolutionized our understanding of the world around us.

At EY we understand the importance of asking great questions.

It's how you innovate, transform and achieve a better working world. One that benefits our clients, our people and our communities.

Finance fuels our lives. No other sector can touch so many people or shape so many futures.

That's why we employ tens of thousands of people across the globe who focus on financial services and nothing else.

By connecting people with the right mix of knowledge and insight, we are able to ask great questions.

The better the question. The better the answer. The better the world works.

A better working world

At EY, we are committed to building a better working world.

One with increased trust and confidence in business, sustainable growth, development of talent in all its forms, and greater collaboration.

We want to build a better working world through our own actions and by engaging with like-minded organizations and individuals.

And we believe that in this world positive things happen; trust increases, capital flows smoothly, investors make informed decisions, businesses grow sustainably, employment rises, consumers spend and governments invest in their citizens.

We passionately support our clients in the knowledge that, together, we can achieve these goals.

An organization without borders

The world is changing faster than at any time in human history.

As businesses connect across borders in dynamic new ways it creates exciting opportunities for investment and growth.

But it also leads to a whole new wave of complexity.

So we have teams in more than 25 locations around the world who focus solely on financial services.

We're not limited by internal structures or processes. Instead, our knowledge and insight-driven, connected and responsive culture means we're ready to support our clients anywhere at a moment's notice.

EY is an organization without borders, well placed to help our clients operate more effectively and efficiently, wherever they are.

By connecting with the right people and knowledge, the possibilities are endless.

When business works better, the world works better

So our high-performing teams are made from talented individuals who share a vast breadth of knowledge and insight, specifically tailored to each client's needs.

This gives us the ability to anticipate and adapt to the rapid and accelerating changes of today's global economy.

It allows us to take a leading approach to issues across assurance, risk, tax, transactions and advisory-related projects.

And it means we can offer timely insights on pressing industry issues and share information on current and emerging trends.

It's all part of our commitment to deliver consistent, high-quality service and build a better working world.

The front row of history

Financial services organizations don't just sit in the front row as history is being made. They shape it.

So every day, in every one of our locations we share a vision – to build a better working world.

We are committed to achieving it by delivering exceptional service across four main business areas – Assurance, Tax, Transaction and Advisory Services.

We work with national governments, regulators and the world's largest financial services organizations to improve financial systems, protect savings and ensure investments are soundly made.

We help global and regional banks to respond to regulatory changes, to strengthen capital, transform, lend and stimulate growth.

Our relationship with insurers helps them to build financial strength and better meet the needs of their customers, while engendering confidence in shareholders and trust in regulators.

We are at the center of the Wealth & Asset Management community, working to ensure our clients meet their regulatory requirements, manage risk and add value to their clients.

And we enable asset managers to better operate in a volatile and rapidly changing market so they can improve on their investments.

Creating a better working world benefits everyone – clients, shareholders, governments, regulators and communities.

That's why we employ tens of thousands of people across the globe who work in financial services and nothing else.
