IFRS and D&O Insurance Implications

For many years (on and off) I have followed the writings of Al Rosen, principal of Rosen & Associates, a forensic accounting firm in Toronto, and of Accountability Research Corp., an independent research company “free from money management conflicts,” here and here.
