McGladrey & Pullen's Investment Company Services Group Acquired By PWC

The Investment Company Services Group of McGladrey & Pullen, the 7th largest accounting firm in the US, has been acquired by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, effective today. Last week, McGladrey finalized arrangements for all of its non-attest assets to be acquired by H&R Block.

The Investment Company Services Group services over 200 mutual funds totalling more than $100 billion in assets.
