Meanwhile, dividends paid to staff, partners, and retired staff and partners rose by over 4% to £3m.
Laurence Longe, RSM chief executive, said: “This year’s excellent financial results very clearly show the commercial benefit of the major investment that has been made in first reshaping and then rebranding the firm following the absorption of the former Tenon business in 2013. Significant underlying organic growth in multiple revenue streams in 2017 is now making its contribution to RSM achieving its long term strategic objective of becoming the first-choice adviser to middle market leaders, globally.”
