India Disclosure Index 2017
How India’s Leading Listed Companies Fare on Corporate Disclosure Standards
FTI Consulting has launched its India Disclosure Index, a report that tracks mandatory and voluntary disclosure practices amongst India’s leading publicly-listed corporations. We wanted to share this significant piece of work with you and we look forward to your thoughts and feedback on the report.
The India Disclosure Index 2017 is the third edition of the India Disclosure Index series. Recognising that raising disclosure standards is an ongoing process that requires a shift in strategic thinking at board levels, FTI Consulting reviewed publicly available information disclosed by leading publicly-listed companies in India to ascertain current practice and identify trends in disclosure across 15 disclosure parameters. We hope, through this report, to provide meaningful insights to board members and senior management teams of India Inc. for benchmarking financial communications practices and disclosure policies. We think this is timely given increasing regulatory activism and institutional investor demand for higher levels of voluntary disclosure from emerging market companies.
