    Now is the time to begin a wide-ranging debate about what is wrong with the current model and how to change it. In KPMG's The future of corporate reporting: towards a common vision we tested the premise that fundamental reforms were needed by interviewing these ten international leaders in the field:


    • Neri Bukspan, Executive Managing Director at Standard & Poor's
    • Stephen Haddrill, CEO of the UK's Financial Reporting Council
    • Hans Hoogervorst, Chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board
    • Julie Hudson, Head of Global Sustainability at UBS
    • Brian Hunt, CEO of the Canadian Public Accountability Board

    • Mervyn King, Chairman of the International Integrated Reporting Council
    • Sandra Peters, Head of Financial Reporting Policy at the CFA Institute
    • Russell Picot, Group Chief Accounting Officer at HSBC
