The PwC story PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is a product of a merger. In 1998 Coopers Lybrand, which began life as a London accountancy practice in London in 1854, combined with Price Waterhouse, another London accountancy practice that began around the same time and which had also grown into a multinational powerhouse.

PwC works with governments, private businesses and not-for-profits to “assess their performance and improve the way they work”.
