Under the agreement, the two organisations will co-operate, collaborate and share resources around the world to support the work of nearly 130,000 finance professionals.

ACCA Chief Executive Allen Blewitt, said: "We are very excited about the prospect of our two bodies working together. We have the highest regard for the work and achievements of SII and we share much in common, including a commitment to promoting the highest ethical standards in the financial profession and to working in the public interest at all times. At a time when there is greater demand for transparency from investors and stakeholders, there is much we can achieve for the benefit of our members and for the public in whose interest they work."
