28/09/2017 - What is your opinion of fair value?
Accounting meets valuation on 5 December 2017 when EFRAG is organising a conference on the use of fair value in financial reporting. Fair value is a topic that encourages debate. While some feel that it enhances the transparency and relevance of financial statements, others point out the challenges in applying fair value and question the volatility that can result from it.
The EFRAG event is a great opportunity to hear the latest views on the use of fair value. With a keynote speech from Sir David Tweedie, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), other speakers having their say on this compelling topic include:
The event will gather experts to discuss both the theory and practice of fair value.
The conference starts at 13:30. Coffee and sandwiches are served from 13:00. More information about the programme will be published on the EFRAG website.
