The overall rankings weren’t greatly troubled from the previous quarter, though PwC appreciably narrowed the advantage of lead auditor KPMG – and it still dominates by aggregate client market-cap. BDO improved its numbers through the period, but the standout performance – a double-digit gain - was attributable to fifth placed EY. PKF Littlejohn registered a modest gain during the period and there were positional improvements for both UHY Hacker Young and Welbeck Associates.
