The Capital Markets Advisory Committee (CMAC) is seeking new candidates to join as members to help shape the work of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

The CMAC is a unique forum for users of financial statements, which includes analysts, investors and ratings agencies. The members discuss directly with IASB members and technical staff how to ensure that IFRS Accounting Standards can require companies to provide users with useful information for making investment decisions.

To ensure a global perspective, the CMAC welcomes applications from analysts and investors from all over the world. CMAC members are drawn from a variety of industry and geographical backgrounds. They are selected on the merits of their professional competence as capital market participants using financial reporting information and their ability to represent capital market participants’ views.

Benefits for members include:

  • having the opportunity to influence the development of IFRS Accounting Standards;
  • keeping up to date with important developments that affect how investors analyse the financial statements;
  • having the opportunity to build networks with investment professionals from around the world; and
  • having the opportunity to interact with IASB members and technical staff.

The CMAC consists of up to 20 members with extensive practical experience in analysing financial information. They do not represent the views and interests of their affiliations, except where explicitly stated. Read information about the CMAC’s current members.

The CMAC meets with IASB representatives during its one-day meetings, which take place three times a year at the IASB’s offices in London, UK. Members can attend either in-person or virtually.

Successful candidates become members from 1 January 2025 for a term of three years, which may be renewed for a further three-year term.
