How Far Should Disclosure Go?

 Last month we saw two speeches from either side of the Atlantic offering very different views for the future of financial reporting. Financial reporting has traditionally been just that – financial. It has a long history, as investors have always needed this critical information to (hopefully) allocate their capital effectively. However, in the information age […]

Deutsche Bank’s AI Digs Through ESG Disclosures
