Is Everything that Counts Being Counted?

At a time of increasing short-term pressure, many CEOs and Boards are struggling to communicate the long-term value that they create. In this report, EY considers what information companies should be providing to satisfy their key stakeholders.

Key points include:
 
  • The shape of value is changing and an increasing proportion of a company’s value lies in its intangible assets but traditional financial reporting metrics were not designed to measure them.
  • The trust gap between business, the establishment and society is widening.
  • There is pressure in the investment chain to focus on the short-term despite the desire to create value in the long-term.
  • The proliferation of data is providing new ways of measuring value but also means organisations are increasingly losing control over the conclusions made about their business.
