After months of deliberation, ICAS is delighted to announce the Top 100 Young CAs 2018, revealed in association with Investec Click & Invest.

We asked you to nominate the CAs under 35 who were excelling in their professional lives, representing the best of ICAS in the worlds of finance, business and beyond. Names flooded in and choosing just 100 was no easy task for our judges.

ICAS Chief Executive Bruce Cartwright CA said: "A huge congratulations to all of our Top 100 Young CAs. We are delighted to recognise them and highlight the ambition, dedication, and pure talent that we have among our members.

ICAS is immensely proud of our Top 100. We look forward to hearing of your future achievements.

"This new campaign has had an amazing response from CAs in every area of business. In this list, we recognise executives and entrepreneurs, accountants in business and the profession, and those involved in business transformation. The variety of roles and standard of performance is impressive.

"ICAS is immensely proud of our Top 100. We also know that there are many more worthy of recognition and we will look to recognise this in the future. We look forward to hearing of your future achievements."

All 100 CAs on the list have been invited to join their peers and other outstanding CAs at the Young CAs Summit on 21 June, where we will also announce the ICAS One Young CA 2018.
