Looking to 2020, we see a bright future and many exciting prospects, but we know our stakeholders operate in testing times. That is why finding and maintaining the right balance resonates more than ever. With our 2019 Yearbook, we take the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to accompanying our clients’ development, helping them navigate the complex environments in which they operate and grow in a sustainable way.
Striking the balance means expanding our global footprint while preserving our local relevance; offering the right mix of expertise to serve clients of all sizes, sectors and geographies; and staying true to our values and culture. It means providing the right environment to foster innovation and allowing our people to grow, remaining relevant and accompanying our clients’ transformation, while making sure we shape our industry for the benefit of today and tomorrow.
Our Annual Report comprises two distinct documents: our 2019 Yearbook and our 2018-2019 Financial Statements. Regarding the latter, we have been publishing our consolidated accounts since 2005, jointly audited and under IFRS, because we seek to apply to ourselves the same discipline that is expected from our clients.
Introducing our first Sustainability report
This year, we are also pleased to introduce our first global Sustainability report. With this publication, we take our commitment to acting as a positive global citizen one step further.
An exceptional year for Mazars
The past year has been exceptional for Mazars. We are present in 91 countries and territories, where our 24,400 talented people - backed up by an additional 16,000 via the Mazars North America Alliance - are delivering bespoke services.
We have grown consistently over recent years and in 2018/2019 our global fee income was up 10.4%, bringing our global revenue to €1.8bn.
This year we celebrated a huge step for Mazars, and for the industry as a whole: the Mazars North America Alliance – an alliance agreement between Mazars and five leading North American audit and advisory firms – provides the market with choice and complements our integrated partnership model. By significantly strengthening our capability across North America, the Alliance allows us to better serve our international clients in the region.
We hope you enjoy reading our 2019 Yearbook, which has been divided into four key chapters.
THE RIGHT SCALE
By combining the scale of our international, multicultural partnership with our deeply-rooted local teams, our clients and people get the best of both worlds: a balanced perspective that is delivered in a personal way.
JUST WHAT YOU NEED
We operate as one team, taking a collaborative, integrated approach that allows us to deliver consistent and personalised services to our clients – large and small – across all sectors and geographies.
CULTIVATING EXPERTS AND ENTREPRENEURS
We invest in our people, in our firm’s transformation and in the growth of our clients. We celebrate the individuality and diversity of our international team, encouraging an entrepreneurial and pioneering mindset.
BALANCING TODAY AND TOMORROW
A responsible firm must create shared value. We are committed to shaping positive change in the market and contributing to the economic foundations of a fair, prosperous world.
