NEW YORK: PR Newswire (PRN) has just launched www.disclosureresource.com, a free online tool to provide investors with educational materials on global disclosure.
The portal, which has gained the support of both the National Investor Relations Institute
and the Investor Relations Society, offers investors information on disclosure requirements, best practices, and corporate governance.
Breaking news on government and regulatory issues, exchanges, corporations, and IR organizations is also available at the website.
Mark Hynes, managing director of IR services for PRN, cited the "turmoil resulting from the corporate scandals," as well as the "impending changes facing European disclosure" and numerous international disclosure regulations as primary factors that led to the development of the site.
Disclosureresource.com presently focuses only on those issues that are relevant to
the Americas and Western Europe. However, PRN does plan to expand the coverage
to include the rest of Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
