2017 PERG Reports
The Private Equity Reporting Group and PwC have published the latest version of the Good Practice Reporting Guide for Portfolio Companies. Applicable to portfolio companies complying with the Walker Guidelines, the Guide has been updated to reflect the increasing standards seen in corporate reporting by the FTSE 350, the benchmark against which compliance with the Guidelines is judged. The Guide highlights examples of good practice aimed at helping portfolio companies with their narrative reporting. It also includes detail on how to comply with the 2014 changes to the Guidelines, including human rights and gender diversity disclosures – two areas where further improvement is needed based on last year’s review (see below).
