EY South Africa Splits its Practice

Ernst & Young South Africa has announced that it has officially separated its accounting and consulting units.

The consulting unit, which will be called 'Argil Ernst & Young Consulting,' was purchased by Worldwide African Investment Holdings, a major black empowerment group that already has an established relationship with EY, having formed a 60/40 joint venture last year.

The new unit's main business focuses will be on the oil industry, telecommunications and financial services.
