A private client experience tailored just for you
There are a lot of private companies in the world — but none like yours. EY Private Client Services (PCS) help address the specific needs of private companies and their stakeholders, aligned to their growth strategy and supportive of their business and personal ambitions. Our private company clients include start-ups, equity-backed, family businesses, and multinational market leaders. We use advanced technology and tools to respond to your unique challenges in assurance and tax support for private companies.
We are a trusted business advisor for private companies. Whether you need an audit focused on your business, tax advice, process improvement ideas, or guidance on international expansion and acquisitions, your EY team has the global reach, scale and expertise to deliver what matters most to you and your business. It is how we help our private clients accelerate growth, and how we help to build a better working world.
We know that off-the-shelf service is not what you need. That is why as a private client of an EY member firm, you can expect to get tailored service that is as unique as you are.

A better conversation
As you work with us, you will find that you are having the type of conversation that matters most to you — one about you and your business, not ours.
We want to have a conversation that’s focused on accelerating your growth and realizing your business and personal ambitions. We want a conversation that is supported and informed by the breadth and depth of our industry insights and our experience of working with the world’s most admired growth companies.
The best conversations always start with a great question — one that makes you stop and think. By asking a better question, we can help you understand the growth challenges that lie ahead and build a better answer to help you overcome them.
Trusted business professionals
Your private client experience starts the moment you meet one of our professionals. They are at the heart of what we do and how we provide exceptional service to all our private clients.
You can expect someone who is connected — who understands you and your business and is ready to leverage the global EY network and their own local network to bring you the most qualified people.
You can expect someone who is responsive — so that every member of the team you work with has the desire and commitment to be proactive, visible and timely. You can expect someone who is insightful, ready to share EY experiences and a point of view tailored to your business and helping you define your strategy for a rapidly changing world.
And above all, you can expect someone who believes in what you do and the difference your business makes to the world in which we live and work.
The EY 7 Drivers of Growth
We have been fortunate to work with many of the world’s most inspiring entrepreneurs — and what we’ve learned along the way helps makes your private client experience one that really makes a difference.
Our EY 7 Drivers of Growth framework was designed to help companies like yours align their capabilities with their strategy to accelerate growth. This unique framework is the product of extensive research that examined the growth journeys of hundreds of companies around the globe — ranging from start-ups to leading businesses — as well as in-depth interviews with winners of our EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ program.
By working with EY, you will be able to chart your company’s position against the most important Drivers of Growth — and from that create an action plan to help you accelerate your growth ambitions.
Responding to your unique challenges
There’s no other business like yours — no other business is going to face the same challenges or uncover the same opportunities that you will. It’s why we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.
As part of the private client experience, we can provide a blend of services and advice that’s as unique as you are. By understanding your growth agenda and unique needs, we can combine our insights and experience, our global resources and our industry capabilities to provide a tailored package of support that works for you.
Whether you need tax advice, a quality audit focused on your business, process improvement ideas or guidance on international expansion and acquisitions, your EY professional will be on hand so you have access to the best of EY — when and where you need it.
There is one thing we have found that is common to all private companies — the need to accelerate growth. Whatever your growth trajectory, we can help you achieve your goals.
Private companies are the engine-room of the global economy, whether they are start-ups or market leaders. You may be looking for rapid growth, sustainable growth or just to grow your organization without losing control. Wherever you are in your company’s life cycle, we have the knowledge and skills to help you identify your growth opportunities and meet the business challenges that all growing companies face.
We use our broad business perspective from our experience of growing companies to help you achieve your business and personal ambitions.
