The US Securities and Exchange Commission has announced the expected panelists for its 29 October 2008 roundtable on mark-to-market accounting.

The roundtable will take place at the SEC's headquarters in Washington D.C. from 9:00am to 1:00pm, and will be webcast. It will begin with opening remarks from SEC Chairman Christopher Cox followed by two roundtable panels. The panel discussions will focus on:
  • Usefulness of mark-to-market accounting to investors and regulators.
  • Potential market behavior effects from mark-to-market accounting.
  • Whether aspects of current accounting standards can be improved, and how?
IASB Vice Chairman Thomas Jones will participate in both panel discussions as an observer, as will representatives of the FASB and several other organisations. The roundtables will provide input to the SEC as part of a Congressionally mandated study pursuant to the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. Click for:
