Investor Priorities Lead FASB Technical and Research Agendas; Complete Report Now Available at FASB Investor Web Portal
Norwalk, CT—August 4, 2022—The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) today issued its 2022 Investor Outreach Report. The document is now available through the FASB investor web portal at www.fasb.org/info/investors.
“If there’s one message we hope to convey through this year’s report, it’s that the FASB is engaging with investors in all stages of our due process and we are actively listening and responding to their feedback,” stated FASB Chair Richard R. Jones and Technical Director Hillary H. Salo in their opening letter. “Investor input was a key driver as we developed our Invitation to Comment, Agenda Consultation, which provided stakeholders an important opportunity to weigh in on the FASB’s future direction.”
The report notes a threefold increase in investor participation in the FASB’s most recent agenda consultation process over the last one conducted in 2016, with the top seven most frequently cited investor priorities currently included on the technical agenda or undergoing further analysis on the research agenda. The report also details the FASB’s ongoing, proactive investor outreach efforts, which included more than 485 investor interactions over the year ended June 30, 2022.
