As soon as 2020, financial statements will be published in electronic format in Europe. Although this new form of financial communication already exists in other markets, its impact on interactions between issuers and investors is still unknown. On one hand, the adoption of this technology will require issuers to invest and go beyond the regulatory framework in their search to leverage the use of technology. On the other hand, investors, and particularly analysts who are increasingly using technology, will have to find ways to differentiate themselves while making sure they are not escaping the fundamentals of analysis. Our panel will be composed of investors and representatives from the investor relations community and the XBRL technology front. Our Guest Speakers will share their views on the experience from other markets, on the regulatory framework, and on the technical opportunities and challenges. By engaging this dialogue, both issuers and investors will have an opportunity to propose the best solutions and share their thoughts on their future relationships. You can find the latest report published by CFA Institutecovering experience shared by CFA members on using XBRL. Please note: this event will be held in English but questions in French are welcome.
