More than 175 years ago, our founders pioneered the practice of professional services. Today, Deloitte has a globally connected network offering a wide spectrum of services including audit, consulting, risk advisory, financial advisory, business advisory and legal. Deloitte is the largest professional services organization globally in terms of global revenue and global headcount and we serve more than 80% of the Fortune Global 500® companies with our multi-disciplinary, comprehensive services. As the world’s largest professional services organization, Deloitte has a strong presence in China and in the southern region, we have seven offices with around 5,000 employees based in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Macau, Xiamen, Sanya and Changsha.

For the third consecutive year, Deloitte ranks ahead of all major professional services competitors. This is testament of Deloitte’s collective resilience which emphasizes our ability to respond, adapt and evolve in a world that can also evolve in an unpredictable manner.
