Understanding Investors: The Road to Real-Time Reporting

This report from ACCA is looking in to how the speed of corporate reporting is changing, and is based on a survey of 300 investors, conducted in March 2013.
 
The report states that investors today are increasingly looking for real-time reporting, 85% said that it would improve their ability to react quickly, 78% believe it would enhance investment return and 73% would consider companies that report in real-time to have more robust corporate governance.

 

There is also a worry about the accuracy in real-time reporting, as well as a fear it may create an increase in market instability. For many investors, the real-time reporting is used as a complement to the regular external corporate reporting, such as quarterly and annual reports.
