IFRS Standards—why do they matter?

 09 February 2016

We have created a short educational video explaining how IFRS Standards help bring accountability, transparency and efficiency to capital markets around the world. The video follows on from the publication last year of the organisation’s Mission Statement, which clearly sets out what the IFRS Foundation aims to achieve.

The video is currently available in English and Spanish, and both versions are below (the English version is first).

You are more than welcome to place the videos on your own website if you wish—you can get the code to embed them from our YouTube channel. The English version is here and the Spanish version is here.
