Collins Barrow leads information session on IFRS for funds

Feb 20, 2013, 09:00 ET from Collins Barrow

TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Collins Barrow Toronto partners Ken Maiden and Maruf Raza present an information session focusing on the upcoming transition of investment funds to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). On February 21, they will discuss treatment of equity and liability, the definition of fair value, required consolidations, and presentation and disclosure rules.

"The move to International Financial Reporting Standards will equip investors with comparable information to enable educated choices about global investment opportunities," says Maruf, a thought leader on IFRS convergence. "At Collins Barrow we help educate fund leaders by providing our insights into how information will change and how it should be interpreted to inform decisions."

"Our experience positions us to deliver expert advice on how the transition will impact reporting of specific offerings such as flow through, multi-series and closed-end funds," says Ken, who is the firm's practice leader in the investment funds field. "In addition to offering assistance with IFRS, we provide a one-stop shop for fund managers and market dealers, providing services that range from assurance and consulting to tax minimization."

Space for this information session is still available.
