Speech by Hans Hoogervorst, Cass Business School, January 2013: 'The search for consistency in financial reporting'

 25 January 2013

On 17 January 2013, Hans Hoogervorst, IASB Chairman, delivered a speech entitled The search for consistency in financial reporting at a Centre for Financial Analysis and Reporting Research (CeFARR) briefing held at Cass Business School in London.

In the speech, Mr Hoogervorst addresses the search for consistency in the application of financial reporting standards, both nationally and internationally. While noting that addressing such consistency is primarily the domain of others, he recognises the need for the IASB to contribute to this important work and outlines five areas where the IASB is taking steps to support these efforts.
