Corporate Reporting: Investors’ focus’


Download presentation material Corporate reporting: Investors' focus 2017

A focus on corporate reporting from an investor’s perspective means taking an in-depth look at what investment professionals actually need from corporate reports in order to make their decisions. PwC has been engaging actively with the investment community for well over a decade now. As part of this, our Corporate Reporting events bring together business and investors to promote a better understanding of the reporting process and its deliverables. 

You will find the detailed agenda and the summaries of the event presentations here.

The event materials from the 2017 event can be downloaded here.
You can also download the materials from the 2015 event here
We are already planning the next event to be held on Tuesday, 25 September 2018. Please contact elena.serova@ch.pwc.com if you wish to receive an invitation.

We were particularly pleased to welcome Aswath Damodaran of New York University Stern School of Business as our keynote speaker this year. Professor Damodaran’s presentation covered some of the highlights from his book ‘Narrative and Numbers’ published this year. He argued that the power of a story drives corporate value and that a business can deliver and sustain value only if it knows how to combine both ‘storytelling’ and ‘number-crunching’. You can find a video of the same presentation he gave at our event here (please note that the link opens in an external website).

Once again, our latest event featured a selection of distinguished speakers who provided a wide range of perspectives. They include representatives from analysts, ratings agencies, regulators and preparers of corporate reports, including:

Simon Ainsworth, Moody’s

Sven Bucher, ZKB

Peter Burkhalter, Swisscom

Gavin Francis, HSBC

Marietta Miemietz, Primavenue

Ian Norris, Idorsia

Cornelia Ritz Bossicard, Valora board member

Christian Schacher, Baloise

Crispin Southgate, Institutional Investment Advisors and former member of Financial Stability Board Enhanced Disclosure Task Force

Andrea Weber, Bank J. Safra Sarasin

Reto Zemp, SIX Swiss Exchange

Once again, the feedback on this year's event was very positive:

"Thank you for organising another fantastic event – the topics and speakers were excellent and the panel discussion concept worked  very well,  the venue and networking opportunity were also superb. I thoroughly enjoyed it, just like every other previous event."
"Many thanks for hosting a fascinating event. I found the sessions useful and interesting... You also found some really engaging speakers who helped to bring the subjects to life..."
"Ich habe mich heute Morgen kurz mit meinen Kollegen ausgetauscht. Alle fanden, dass es ein sehr, sehr gut organisierter Anlass war, mit vielen, sehr interessanten und spannenden Referenten und Gesprächsthemen."
"Es war ein sehr gelungener Anlass am 6. November, viele interessante Themen und eine sehr gute Organisation/Betreuung."
