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.
