CA Magazine May 2015

With the NHS at the forefront of the debate in the UK General Election, this month's issue of The CA features Paolo Pieri CA, CFO with private healthcare group Circle Holdings. 

He talks about the career route that took him through Richard Branson's Virgin Empire and to the health sector, and makes the argument – which some will find controversial – for the role of the private sector in our publicly funded NHS.

Also in the May issue, we take a look at the M&A market, which appears to be booming again in the UK and Europe generally, and ask: what's driving it?

Other features include advice on realising your ambitions by taking charge of your own professional development; how to find, and make the most of, a mentor; and an overview of the key legal developments affecting business in 2015.

Finally, we detail the results of a survey of ICAS members in business that asked "should the UK stay in Europe?" and also found what they see as positives and negatives about our EU membership; and report on the ICAS election hustings events in London and Edinburgh.
