European investment professionals back quarterly reporting
Survey of investment professionals on the reporting of financial information
Association for Investment Management and Research (AIMR)
Nov 2003 Europe (including EU) Investment - General
The researcher maintains the findings from this survey give clear message from the individuals who make up Europe's investment profession, saying that investors do not make investment decisions once or twice a year. The researcher says they need, and deserve, regular, comprehensive reporting of financial information by Europe's issuers. They need it in accepted formats and measurements and quarterly financial statements, based on generally accepted accounting standards determined through an independent standard setting process, are the perfect vehicle for reaching all investors large and small. And while there is some support for current proposals to introduce summary quarterly reporting, the survey shows that investors need more.
