Porter's Jets Pit Bay Street Versus Islanders

Fri, 2013-04-12 15:13

There is uncertainty, there’s no question about it.”

Back in August 2003, Timothy Koller wrote in McKinsey Quarterly an article “Numbers investors can trust”, where he emphasized the importance of “genuine disclosure” of financial information by public companies. It was a call to corporations that wished to regain the trust of investors after the 2000 dot-com collapse. By strange coincidence, that year was marked by a new crisis of sub-prime mortgages, which was again partly related to the lack of proper disclosure of business and financial information.
