Academic Journal
The article mentions the stance of the Financial Executives International (FEI) organization and its Committee on Corporate Reporting (CCR) regarding a full disclosure rule proposed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). A letter was sent by FEI to SEC Secretary Jonathan Katz that referred to the disparity in policies and views on disclosure which are held by FEI members. The CCR is concerned about the appropriateness of selective disclosure which can negatively impact investor confidence in the securities market and about ambiguous interpretation and arbitrary enforcement of new rules.
