The Center for Audit Quality, Washington, D.C., is debuting a video to support an investor education campaign that aims to raise public awareness about financial reporting requirements and laws that protect investors.
The 3-and-a-half minute video uses a “film noir” setting to introduce those with key responsibilities in the financial reporting system, including:
—Ledger Lines, an external auditor with a granite chin;
—Lotta Charts, a CFO and a whiz with the books;
—Indy Pendent, the chair of the independent audit committee and a man of integrity;
—Ida Figures, an internal auditor who’s tough on the numbers; and
—Johnny Law, the cop on the beat who makes sure that everyone is playing by the rules.
The Web site serves as the home of the investor education campaign and features “Ledger’s Links,” additional information for investors, including The Guide to Public Company Auditing, “Did You Know?” facts about the audit process, and other CAQ resources. The video is also available on social media channels YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
