Welcome to the investor relations section of the DSW Capital plc website.

DSW Capital (“DSW”), the owner of the Dow Schofield Watts brand, is a profitable, mid-market, challenger professional services network with a cash-generative business model and scalable platform for growth.

Our vision is for the DSW Network to become the most sought-after destination for ambitious, entrepreneurial professionals to start and develop their own businesses.

Originally established in 2002 by three KPMG alumni, DSW is one of the first platform models disrupting the traditional model of accounting professional services firms. As of 17 January 2024, DSW operates licensing arrangements with 24 licensee businesses and 108 Fee Earners across 11 UK offices, primarily trading under the Dow Schofield Watts brand.

Through a licensing model, DSW gives professionals the autonomy and flexibility to fulfil their potential. Being part of the DSW Network brings support benefits in recruitment, funding, and infrastructure. DSW’s challenger model attracts experienced senior professionals, predominantly with a “Big 4” accounting firm background, who want to launch their own businesses and recognise the value of the Dow Schofield Watts brand and the synergies which come from being part of the DSW Network.

We aim to scale its agile model through organic growth, geographical expansion, additional service lines and investing in “Break Outs” (existing teams in larger firms). The Directors target high-margin, complementary, niche service lines with a strong synergistic fit with the existing DSW Network.

The Board places great importance on effective communication with all its stakeholders and is committed to the delivery of timely news and information updates, and to assist with this, we would encourage registration to our RNS alert service.
