FRC to broaden investor engagement

Apr 20, 2018
The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has called on asset managers, pension funds, sell-side analysts, ratings agencies, proxy advisors and sovereign wealth funds to be representatives of the investor community for a new Investor Advisory Group (IAG).

The IAG will provide a regular forum for the FRC to engage with representatives from across the investment chain on various issues including the FRC's strategy and plan, and new policies and standards on governance, stewardship, reporting and audit matters.

It will also help the FRC to better understand the investment community’s views of FRC effectiveness. The FRC will use the IAG as a formal way of understanding key areas of concern and emerging risks from the perspective of investors.

The deadline for nominations for membership of the group is 18 May 2018.
