Cathy Baron Tamraz Discusses Disclosure and Transparency

Cathy Baron Tamraz, Business Wire President & CEO, discusses the challenges facing Treasury Secretary Timothy tamraz_cathy_baronGeithner regarding maintaining and increasing transparency in the financial markets in a new commentary at FinReg21.

Tamraz’s recommendations, combined with new SEC chief Mary Schapiro’s “visceral reaction” to the idea of web-based disclosure in which market participants have to go looking for financial information, are good news for the markets and for investors.  Tamraz talks about the press release as a disclosure vehicle, and how the existing framework for news distribution is already in place to help Sec. Geithner reassess the state of disclosure and help avoid future financial crises.
