On October 22, 2015, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) IASB published an article offering a brief look into the Investors in Financial Reporting programme achievements.

In December 2014, the IASB launched a new "Investors in Financial Reporting" programme designed to foster greater investor participation in the development of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The new participants to the programme are Aberdeen Asset Management, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, Insight Investment and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

The four investment organizations join the original group of 10 asset managers and owners from around the world: Allianz Global Investors, APG Asset Management, AustralianSuper, BlackRock, Fidelity Worldwide Investment, Henderson Global Investors, Hermes Investment Management, Nomura Asset Management, PGGM Investments and UniSuper.

This article assesses the impact of the programme on both the IASB and the investors involved.

Access the article and a press release on the four new participants to the programme on the IASB's Web site.
