The future

How will the ESEF regulation impact you?

We recently interviewed Thomas Toomse-Smith, Director of the Financial Reporting Lab, to discuss the upcoming ESEF regulation that could fundamentally reshape how companies report their financials. 

In the interview, we discussed:

  • What's likely to be the ESEF regulation?
  • When does it come into effect and who will it impact?
  • How can companies prepare for it?
  • What could the future of reporting entail?



Corporate reporting is at a point of inflection. With all the upcoming regulatory changes impacting how companies view the annual report, we think the latest change from European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is an opportunity for companies to rethink how they engage with investors and explore distinctive ways to get their voices heard. You can either see the annual report as a compliance document or see it as an opportunity to create engaging content that resonates, influences investor behaviour and tells your corporate story in a way that makes you stand out from the crowd.
