In the latest issue of the IR Society’s quarterly journal, Informed, Friend founder and digital reporting lead, Rob Riche, outlines how to future-proof your reporting for the digital transformation ahead.

Here are some key takeaways from the article:

The FRC has set out clear guidance on best practice in digital reporting: responsive, interactive, user friendly, accessible, with high quality easy-to-use XBRL tagging. This guidance creates many opportunities for companies to enhance their reporting by embracing digital-first solutions.
