A report on capitalism

Capitalism reported

e.com's founder and manager Mike Guillaume wears two hats -financial reporting specialist and international economist- and has got good vantage points for watching companies, economies and economics work (or not). In the new expanded edition of his thought-provoking book, he reviews capitalism's deadly sins (and what's left of the system's virtues) and proposes a toolbox for reinventing a model.

Annual Report on Annual Reports

We know that corporate reporting changes behaviour and, fortunately, companies, investors, regulators and standard-setters are alive to the need to evolve corporate reporting, as well as corporate governance, practices.

Reports from the Financial sector

Annual Report on Annual Reports - Evaluation tools
Financial sector reporting

e.com has a solid track record in the assessment and benchmarking of reports from the financial sector. Actually, that's where and how we started our report evaluation business, back in the 90s. Since then, we have kept on providing evaluation services to some financial institutions who strive for higher reporting standards and best practice.

However, for consistency, comparability and credibility reasons (chalk it up to the latest financial crises and other stress factors) it has been decided not to select financial sector institutions for the Annual Report on Annual Reports these last years. This does not imply that there are not high-quality reports in the sector. e.com has therefore developed specific evaluation tools for the financial sector.

Is your online reporting up?

Online reporting and IR website assessment

Is your online reporting up? Websites are increasingly used as communication channels to investors and other stakeholders. They supplement or even replace partly or wholly the traditional printed documents. They have to be reckoned with. e.com has set up two specific evaluation services: the Online Annual Report Screening and the Investor Relations Website Review. More about the Online Annual Report Screening here. More details about the Investor Relations Website Review, as well as a presentation of all report assessment and benchmarking services can be found here.
