Accenture's Wide Moat Couldn't Get Any Wider, in Our View

Accenture is one of the largest IT-services companies in the world, providing both consulting and outsourcing capabilities. We think that Accenture’s growth will remain at a healthy and gradual pace, thanks to the persistence of digital transformation trends. With the company's prominent reputation, which we believe to be crucial to the consulting business, and its proven ability to bring expertise to a gamut of enterprise issues, we are confident Accenture will maintain its wide economic moat.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Accenture will increase wallet share with its enterprise customers as the technology landscape becomes increasingly complex.

Bears

Given our belief that reputation is a key driver of Accenture’s wide moat, if a large scandal were to occur (data breach or privacy invasion), the firm’s reputation could suffer.
