CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS WORLDWIDE
Chartered Accountants Worldwide brings together the leading institutes of Chartered Accountants from around the world to support, develop and promote the vital role that Chartered Accountants play throughout the global economy.
Chartered Accountants have been a mark of excellence across all aspects of business and financial life for over 150 years. Today, Chartered Accountants advise organisations, lead major companies, shape economic policy and deliver effective financial management and reporting.
Together, we’re committed to ensuring that our members continue to stand apart, defining excellence throughout their career, throughout the world.
Connecting hundreds of thousands of members and students, we:
» promote the commitment of our global membership to the highest standards of professional and ethical practice
» create greater opportunities globally for those seeking to become or develop as Chartered Accountants – and those looking to train or employ them
» share expertise and innovation to maintain Chartered Accountancy’s position as the preeminent qualification for those in accountancy, finance and business.
Our mission is to facilitate the professional success of our members, promote the business community’s recognition of, and respect for, these professionals. Since our founding in 1980, we have worked to achieve this by focusing on achieving increased:
- awareness and understanding of the Chartered Accountant qualification by the business community
- value to members and institutes by being a vibrant organization
- participation by our eligible members in chapter activities and on-line education
- bench strength (emerging leaders) to sustain the association over time with active volunteers
- advocate for mutual recognition of our institute qualifications and building relationships with other U.S.-based organizations. As of October 2020, all our foundational institutes bar one have MRAs in place with AICPA/NASBA. The remaining institute – ICAEW – is in active discussion to achieve similar.
