Financial Disclosure Overload and Complexity: When Will It Get Easier?
Course Description with Learning Objectives: In 2011, KPMG issued a research report entitled: Disclosure Overload and Complexity: Hidden in Plain Sight. The topic of disclosure overload and complexity has been addressed by multiple organizations over many years. Despite the years, the problem persists: Some users of financial information have an insatiable appetite for more information. Some also observe that the sheer volume of required, but otherwise uninformative disclosures makes finding useful information a challenge. Those of us responsible for preparing financial disclosures are often stuck in the middle, providing ever more complex disclosures in an environment of increasing more complex transactions, investments, financial instruments and relationships. Where does it end, and will it ever get easier? Join us for a conversation with: Robert Herz, former chairman of the FASB, Terry Iannaconi, Partner in Charge, Knowledge Sharing Department of Professional Practice, KPMG, Nick Cappiello, Project Manager, Disclosure Framework, FASB and Bill Sinnett, Director of Research, Financial Executives Research Foundation, Inc. (FERF). Joe Howell, co-founder of WebFilings and the SEC Professionals Group will moderate the conversation. In this webinar, you will learn:
