Abstract [en]

This thesis focuses on lead auditors' differences in terms of client portfolios and performances. First, lead auditors are surveyed and their responses on professional scepticism linked to their performances. Second, survey and archival data are combined to check whether self-control is related to performance. Third, lead auditors' client portfolios are examined with regard to industry similarity, portfolio dispersion and client grouping. Finally, auditors' independence is tested in the private firm setting. Overall, the findings indicate that performance is not homogenous across lead auditors in the same (tier) audit firm(s), and that the characteristics of lead auditors and accounting firms are determinants that partly explain the differences.

Abstract [sv]

Avhandlingen fokuserar på skillnader i klientportföljer och prestation mellan ansvariga (alternativt påskrivande) revisorer och består av fyra huvudsakliga delar (alternativt studier). I den första delen kopplas mått på professionell skepticism, som bygger på enkätsvar från ansvariga revisorer, till prestation. I den andra delen kombineras enkätdata med arkivdata för att undersöka sambandet mellan självkontroll och prestation. I den tredje delen analyseras revisorernas klientportföljer utifrån dimensionerna branschtillhörighet, klientgruppering och portföljspridning. I den sista delen genomförs tester av revisorns oberoende för uppdrag i privata företag. Sammantaget indikerar resultaten att prestation varierar mellan revisorer från samma revisionsbyrå och att egenskaper hos ansvariga revisorer och revisionsbyråer delvis kan förklara dessa skillnader.
