Joint CFA Institute and IFRS Foundation event: Transforming the impact of financial information—the role of technology

Are traditional metrics still relevant?

Effective communication of accurate, trustworthy, insightful information is the cornerstone of well-functioning capital markets. How are technological changes affecting information consumption? What are the potential benefits, or pitfalls, to consider?

This is the third annual event that the IFRS Foundation and CFA Institute have organised especially for the investment community, and is an important part of our ongoing dialogue with investors.
