Lab calls for participants for project on the reporting of performance metrics

On 12 December 2017, the Financial Reporting Lab (the Lab) invited investors, analysts and companies of all sizes to participate in a project on effective Reporting on Performance.

Following on from the Lab’s reports on business models (PDF) and risk and viability (PDF), this project is exploring how companies measure performance against their strategic objectives. It considers both financial and non-financial metrics, and will highlight how these measures can be presented in a way that is most useful to investor decision-making.

Investors, analysts and companies interested in participating should contact the Lab via email at
