Best Practices Committee Print E-mail

The goals for the committee are to develop and publish best practices recommendations with regard to consistent and meaningful definitions of industry terms as well as to encourage additional disclosure of financial performance. All of APREA’s best practice recommendations in relation to financial reporting are intended to be fully consistent with IAS accounting guidelines. Ultimately, we are convinced that consistent and transparent disclosure will attract investors to an industry and sector where they clearly understand the opportunities and the risks. The committee has formed an Accounting and Financial Reporting Working Group.

The committee has produced the first edition of the APREA Best Practices Handbook. It covers guidelines on financial reporting, valuation, portfolio performance reporting, corporate governance, sustainability and market disclosure. A Best Practices Handbook sub-committee managed the development of the second edition in 2012.  The second edition is published in English, Japanese and Chinese.

The APREA Best Practices Recommendations have continued to gain momentum as the clear benchmark for the region.  The Committee is pleased to see that the Handbook is acting as a catalyst for increasing dialogue around what best practice means for the sector in Asia Pacific.

The committee also manages the annual APREA Best Practices Awards.

The Committee is now looking to tackle two areas of inconsistency with a view to providing an industry benchmark for the region.  The development of a standard underlying earnings metric and Management Expense Ratio calculation methodology is on the agenda.
