Issue 7 of the IASB Investor Update: our newsletter for the investment community

 13 October 2015

Investor Update aims to make it easy for investors to keep up with changes in the world of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and how those changes may affect an investor's day job.

Each issue profiles recently introduced Standards, or changes that are in the pipeline, and how they may alter the way in which you look at companies and analyse performance.  We highlight events and publications that are of interest to investors.  We also tell you when and how you can best share your thoughts on the direction we are taking.
