Transparency & Fairness Advocating standards to promote an open and honest financial system

Transparency & Fairness

Transparent and fair principles for investment reporting, tools, and guidance can help set the expectations of prospective and existing clients. We support a financial community that encourages full disclosure and communication with clients. When information is withheld from clients, it harms the relationship and sense of fairness. Information is critical for effective analysis and should be made available to investors. It's what you don't know that can be the most damaging.

We focus on improving transparency and fairness for the benefit of investors in a variety of ways, including advocating to regulators and standard-setters for effective information that helps investors make high quality decisions.
