Reporting more comprehensively on important non-financial assets can often improve the valuation of your company in the capital markets. PwC research shows that investors and analysts consider financial reports by themselves to be of limited use in determining a company's prospects. That should not be too surprising — management itself does not rely solely on financial information in running its business. Your company's brands, market share, customer retention levels, and intellectual capital are of intense interest to investors.
PwC can assist organisations that need to ensure the quality and credibility of internal management information and external disclosures and, in particular, non-financial indicators. Our professional leadership on issues related to non-financial performance reporting, has not been limited to simply advocating reform. Instead, PwC helped pioneer the concept and practice of non-financial performance reporting with the development of ValueReporting — the most comprehensive and robust approach to reporting transparency available in the marketplace.
