Number of the Day: 0.366%

According to a report by The Telegraph, this is the percentage of black equity partners at the Big 4 firms in the U.K.

Just 11 of the almost 3,000 equity partners at the Big Four accounting firms are black, forcing bosses to promise a push for diversity in their senior ranks as the Black Lives Matter movement turbocharges calls for racial equality.

That equates to less than 0.4pc of the total, compared to 3.3pc of the UK population, The Telegraph can reveal.

Deloitte has just one black equity partner. EY and KPMG have two each while PwC has six.
