Message from John Epperson, Managing Principal, Financial Services
Dear FIEB readers,
It’s February, and many of our readers are in the throes of the year-end financial reporting process. Transparency in financial reporting is key to providing decision-useful information to investors. On the topic of transparency, on Feb. 7, 2022, Crowe released its “2021 U.S. Transparency Report: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.” The report offers an analysis of where Crowe stands related to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and programs and describes the firm’s immediate and long-term goals.
We are well into earnings season now, and, after – in some cases – a record-setting 2021, the industry is poised to tackle 2022 with all eyes on interest rates and inflation.
As we now reach the middle of the first quarter of 2022, we continue to keep you informed about the many developments throughout the regulatory and standard-setting landscape.
