Menzies LLP and Insight Management & Systems Consultants Ltd have announced a strategic partnership in the form of a joint venture. The new venture will combine both companies' expertise to provide both public and private sector organisations with a complete finance systems and accounting services offering.
The joint venture, which will be called Insight MSC Limited, will be part of the Menzies LLP group and will bring together the size and scale of a top-20 accounting practice with the specialist finance / ERP systems consultancy and sector knowledge of Insight.

Andrew Denley, Menzies Managing Partner, said: "We are very excited about this new venture as, given the enormous pressure on organisations to cut costs and restructure to provide greater value, by combining Insight's and Menzies' expertise we are able to offer clients a powerful proposition and a real alternative to the larger consultancies."
Peter Morley, Insight Director, commenting on the venture said: "We are committed to continue to support the public sector and are delighted to have joined forces with Menzies. This will allow us to both continue to develop innovative solutions for clients as well as to access considerable additional capability and expertise to enable us to jointly provide a complete solution for our clients. Insight and Menzies have been working closely for a number of years and share the same culture, ethics, professionalism and client commitment and therefore the partnership has solid foundations. We look forward to being part of the same team".
The joint venture will be based at Menzies' London office in Tavistock Square.
