Accounting Regulators Unveil New Look

The 40th anniversary provides the ideal opportunity for all three groups to refresh their brand "in a way that reinforces the organizations' missions and highlights their contributions from the past while looking ahead to the future," FAF President/CEO Teresa Polley said.

"As standard-setters for the world's most robust and dynamic economy, the FAF, the FASB, and the GASB are responsible for ensuring that financial reporting meets the needs of investors who keep our economy thriving...The new branding associated with this responsibility reflects that significance, with each component designed to reflect our shared commitment to working on behalf of U.S. investors and global capital markets."

The redesigned websites will include "plain English" sections explaining major agency projects, and are designed to be more friendly, intuitive, and educational, the FAF said. An interactive timeline covering the history of all three regulators is also featured on the FASB site.

The FAF is responsible for the oversight, administration, and finances of its standard-setting boards, FASB and GASB, and their Advisory Councils.
