XBRL US announced today that the annual XBRL US Investor Forum 2021: Data that Delivers, will feature two keynote speakers, Commissioner Caroline A. Crenshaw of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission; and Independent Corporate Director and former FASB Chairperson, Leslie F. Seidman. This year’s virtual forum, which will take place on November 10, 2021, will focus on how machine-readable data has transformed the way investors, analysts, auditors, and public companies manage assets, and conduct due diligence and research for a variety of activities.

“The availability of machine-readable financial and nonfinancial data has revolutionized the data ecosystem. Startup analytics providers have developed new ways to analyze massive amounts of digital information, which streamlines the process and allows more time for analysis,” said Leslie F. Seidman, former FASB Chairperson. “This event provides an opportunity to showcase the powerful combination of digitized data and user-friendly technology.”

The forum, which will be live-streamed and is free to the public, is sponsored by Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, CFA Institute, and CFA Society New York. Registration is required:
