Big Four firm E&Y (Ernst & Young) has appointed a new partner in its financial services transaction advisory practice.
Ajay Rawal is joining the leading UK accountancy sector company from Alvarez & Marsal, where he held the position of partner in the European financial industry advisory services group.
Mr Rawal's extensive experience in the financial world has seen him advise government agencies, national authorities as well as various European banks on their financial systems strategies. Repositioning of bank assets is one of his biggest strengths.

EMEIA head of financial services transaction advisory services, David Barker, commented on the appointment of Mr Rawal.
"We are thrilled to have Ajay join the transaction practice. At a time when there is so much uncertainty and change in the banking sector across the Eurozone, it is fundamental that we have skilled and experienced individuals like Ajay to help guide the market into more stable times," he said.
