The core principle of the federal securities law is disclosure so that investors can make informed decisions. However, there has never been a consensus about what information the Securities and Exchange Commission should require to be disclosed. Disagreements now seem more widespread than ever before, including disputes over disclosures relating to corporate political contributions, say-on-pay, “soft information,” conflict minerals, CEO pay ratio, accounting standards, and environmental impacts. Responding to these controversies, the SEC has recently begun a comprehensive review of its disclosure policies. The 2014 Leet Symposium will bring together leading figures from the SEC, proxy advisory firms, legal practice, and academia to discuss both specific disclosure concerns and compliance issues and broader questions of what disclosure policies would best facilitate informed investing in our securities markets.
