Financial Reporting Lab < reporting NOW > Conference
The Lab held its annual conference on Thursday 21st June 2018
The conference was opened by Sir Win Bischoff, Chairman of the Financial Reporting Council. Sir Win highlighted the unique nature of Lab in encouraging good reporting by companies by finding practical, market-led solutions. In the first conference session, we revisited two of the Lab’s past reports, 'Business model reporting' and 'Risk and viability reporting', and we presented our first report on the performance metrics project, which was released to coincide with the Lab conference.
The topic for the first panel session was ‘Reporting Past’, and this session was moderated by Thomas Toomse-Smith (Project Director, Financial Reporting Lab), with the following panel members:
Susan Swabey (Company Secretary, Smith and Nephew)
Andrew Tusa (Managing Director Corporate Broking, Barclays)
Freddie Woolfe (Head of Responsible Investment and Stewardship, Old Mutual Global Investors).
The second panel was moderated by Sallie Pilot (Director, Black Sun) and focussed on the ‘Reporting Future’. The panellists were:
Stephanie Maier (Director, Responsible Investment, HSBC Global Asset Management)
Douglas Radcliffe (Group Investor Relations Director, Lloyds Banking Group)
Ben Yeoh (Senior Portfolio Manager, RBC Global Asset Management)
Finally, we heard from Thomas Toomse-Smith, who provided an update on the Lab's Digital Future project, including a summary of the Lab's recent report on blockchain.
