If investors were in charge of reporting - MerchantCantos

The corporate reporting landscape has changed rapidly over the last decade. New regulations have put companies under unprecedented scrutiny. The role of the annual report is once again in the spotlight. As the trend towards ‘no frills’ reporting gathers momentum, there is no better time to take a step back and ask what exactly do investors want from reporting. As reporting continues to evolve, companies should be mindful of what investors want and need from it.

New regulations have put companies under unprecedented scrutiny. The role of the annual report is once again in the spotlight. As the trend towards ‘no frills’ reporting gathers momentum, there is no better time to take a step back and ask what exactly do investors want from reporting. One of our key findings is that the annual report is still considered to be the most important – and most credible – source of information about a company, particularly for investors making an initial investment decision. As reporting continues to evolve, companies should be mindful of what investors want and need from it. With new technologies shaping the way investors receive information, we believe now is the time for companies to rethink how they engage with investors, be responsive to their changing needs and explore distinctive ways to tell their corporate story.
