  • Sharing perspectives on key areas of concern and emerging risks relating to accounting, reporting, auditing and governance issues.
  • Providing input from the investment community on:
    • Auditing, accounting and narrative reporting policy development, including proposed developments to international codes, standards and regulations as appropriate.
    • The UK Corporate Governance Code.
    • The UK Stewardship Code.
    • The FRC strategy and plan.
  • Considering and responding to requests for input and advice from the FRC relating to thematic reviews and other ad-hoc projects.

The IAG will meet four times per year and the split of membership will represent a range of investment community participants.

Nominations are requested by 18 May 2018.
