The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) has organised a webinar which aims to provide a forum to discuss best practices and challenges in relation to dissemination of financial and non-financial information which public listed companies are required to carry out to ensure a transparent robust equity market.
The virtual forum on 23rd September 2021 titled ‘Investor Relations, Disclosures and Quarterly Reporting: A Prerequisite for Equity Markets’ will feature an experienced line up of speakers and panelists.
Investor relations is a primary responsibility of Boards of Directors who must ensure that accurate and reliable information is provided to equity market participants, financial analysts and regulators to prevent misinformation and market manipulations.
In such a scenario, quarterly financial reporting and the disclosure requirement of the Colombo Stock Exchange provides the necessary structure and content to ensure this process.
Therefore, the speakers and panelists will utilise this virtual forum to discuss at length the best practices and challenges in information dissemination and the efforts that must be taken to prevent misinformation and manipulation.
The speakers and panelists will comprise of Ranjani Joseph, Partner and Deputy Head of Audit & Head of Markets at KPMG, Ravi Abeysuriya, President of the Association of Alternative Financial Institutions and Director/CEO of Candor Group, Nilupa Perera, Head of Trading & Operations, Market Surveillance & Corporate Affairs at the Colombo Stock Exchange, Pathumi Abeysekera, Assistant Vice President – Corporate Finance and Strategy at John Keells Holdings PLC, and Hiran Samarasinghe, Head of Strategy at Sunshine Holdings PLC, while Asite Talwatte, Chairman of the Corporate Governance Committee of CA Sri Lanka will moderate the session.
The webinar will be immensely beneficial to Directors and Aspiring Directors of Listed Companies, as well as Chief Financial Officers, Chief Executive Officers and Regulators. Please visit www.casrilanka.com to register for the event.
