Creating Interactive Data to Serve Investors
The March 19 roundtable will be the third in a series of interactive data roundtable discussions conducted by the SEC. The event begins with remarks from SEC Chairman Cox and an address by Vanguard Group Chairman and CEO John J. Brennan on the use of interactive data by public companies and mutual funds to improve disclosure for individual investors. Following Mr. Brennan's remarks, John White, Director of the Commission's Division of Corporation Finance, will discuss the creation of interactive financial reports by public companies. The roundtable will also feature a panel discussion on the benefits, including potential cost savings, of preparing financial reports using interactive data written in a computer language called XBRL. Panelists will include executives at public companies currently providing investors with interactive data on a test basis as part of the SEC's voluntary filing program. The panel will be moderated by Chicago Sun-Times personal finance columnist Terry Savage. Richard Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of The Corporate Library, will provide closing remarks and discuss the significance of interactive data for corporate governance.
