Event Description:
About the Program:
Today, every U.S. public company reports financial statement data in XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language), making corporate financial data - down to the detailed footnotes - more accessible, timely and accurate than ever before. This free industry event will cover how technology changes the way we analyze companies and make investment decisions. We will explore and demonstrate how XBRL is used by the SEC, data aggregators and buy- and sell-side firms. Join keynote speakers Agnes Grunfeld, CFA, Managing Director, GMI Ratings and Dan Gode, NYU Stern School of Business - plus speakers from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the investment community.

Learn about new open source and commercial tools that now offer timelier, functional data. Hear from data aggregators that are serving up XBRL data to their clients. Find out what’s ahead for corporate data and potential changes in other areas like corporate actions, earnings releases and even government data. The XBRL and Financial Analysis Conference is brought to you by the NY Society of Security Analysis (NYSSA), the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity and XBRL US, the non-profit consortium for XBRL reporting.

Speakers and Agenda*:
3:00 pm - Opening Remarks Campbell Pryde, President and CEO, XBRL US
3:05 - Keynote Agnes Grunfeld, CFA, Managing Director, GMI Ratings
3:30 - XBRL Data for Analysis – a Review of Data in Use Today and What’s Ahead

XBRL data has promised ease of use, greater accuracy and timeliness, and the ability to quickly and easily consume and analyze large volumes of company-specific data. This group of panelists from the data aggregator community will discuss how their organizations are planning for the use of XBRL and are actively consuming XBRL data today for their buy- and sell-side clients. Discussion will cover challenges and benefits of XBRL from a database standpoint, e.g., what needs to be done to prep the data, and how it can be beneficial from an analytical standpoint.

4:35 - How Analysts, Investors & Regulators Use Corporate Data: A Changing Landscape

Regulators, sell-side and buy-side analysts consume data in different ways, e.g., for historical analysis comparing multiple companies, for trading purposes, to identify outliers. Learn how the use of XBRL is already changing the way these stakeholders perform day-to-day analysis and how that could change even more in the future with XBRL in earnings announcements, government data, corporate actions announcements.
