Investors, Small Cos, and Regulators Sound Off At SEC IFRS Roundtable

Following on our post last week with some highlights from the investors panel at the SEC's July 7 IFRS Roundtable (Carve-Ins, Not Carve-Outs, Can Help IFRS Adoption, Investors Panel Tells SEC), FEI posted a more detailed summary today containing highlights from all three panels at the roundtable.

The FEI summary, entitled "Investors, Small Companies, and Regulators Sound Off at SEC IFRS Roundtable" was authored by Quentin Walsh, a member of FEI’s New Jersey Chapter, who observed the roundtable proceedings first-hand in the public observers’ area.

Additional summaries of the SEC's July 7 IFRS Roundtable can be found in various blogs and news websites. As is apparent in some of the headlines below, (some of which are on the subject of the SEC's consideration of IFRS, but not necessarily last week's roundtable) the posts contain the various author's own views, in addition to highlights from the roundtable.
