15/06/2016 - EFRAG - EFFAS/ABAF Joint Event: What is new in Accounting for Leases: A Change worth $2.2 Trillion

EFRAG, EFFAS and ABAF/BVFA are pleased to give insight into the speaker panel of their outreach event on IFRS 16.

The event takes place on Tuesday 5 July 11.15 - 13.30 hrs in the EFRAG offices.

The speakers include Hans Buysse, Member of EFFAS Management Committee and EFRAG Board Member; EFRAG TEG Chairman Andrew Watchman; Fred Nieto, Head of Investor Engagement IASB; Matthias Maenhaut, ING; Stuart Jennings, Fitch Ratings; Ben Peters, Fund Manager and CEO at Evenlode Investment; Filippo Poli, EFRAG Research Director; and Patricia McBride, EFRAG Technical Director.

The interactive panel discussion with users will focus on:

• Big change: all leases on the balance sheet. How do you react?
• Is the picture substantially right? Have the right contracts been identified?
• How should leases be presented?
• Does it matter that non-GAAP measures will change?
• So, how will the world react?

We look forward to welcoming you, your views matter!
