Eumedion welcomes the proposals of the International Auditing and Assurance Board (IAASB) to improve the audit quality. This is the core of Eumedion's comments on a consultation by the global audit standards setter.
The required disclosure of net short positions above 0.5% is valuable for institutional investors. This is stated in Eumedion's response to ESMA’s Call for Evidence on the functioning of the European Short Selling Regulation.
Eumedion is positive about the Corporate Governance Action Plan, published by the European Commission in December 2012. It supports almost all the measures announced. This is the key message of a Eumedion letter sent today to the European Commission.
One of the focal points (also known as its spearheads) of Eumedion is to reduce the amount of non-material disclosures in the financial reporting. Eumedion and the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers VNO-NCW asked the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) for its position in this matter.
