Assessing the Disconnection Between Financial and Regulatory Reporting of Banks

10 Feb 2011

London, UK


This roundtable was a part of the ICFR longer term research programme: "Is financial reporting fit for purpose?" During this session Paul Klumpes, Professor of Finance at the EDHEC Business School presented a paper entitled “Never the twain shall meet? Assessing the Disconnection Between Banks’ Financial and Regulatory Reporting.”

This paper explored the arguments for and against the decoupling of IFRS and Basel II based capital ratio calculations. It also analysed recent trends in both accounting and regulatory supervision related to banks post the financial crisis and identifies deficiencies in the transparency of accounting versus regulatory-based capital disclosures and calculations.
