Grant Thornton’s culture is one of our most valuable assets and has steered us in the right direction for more than 100 years.

Across the globe, we have more than 50,000 people committed to bringing our values to life every day and helping dynamic businesses unlock their potential for growth.

Reason + Instinct = Growth

At Grant Thornton, we use the term Reason + Instinct as a shorthand for our different culture and approach. This distinctive approach combines technical excellence and rigour with intuitive judgement and insight. We believe this combination results in better relationships, a deeper understanding of our clients’ agendas and ultimately, more valuable and meaningful advice. Our tagline “An instinct for growth” expresses not just what we deliver to our clients, but how we deliver it.
