An exploration of the usefulness of the disclosures for derivatives in company annual reports
Bean, Anne J. (2016) An exploration of the usefulness of the disclosures for derivatives in company annual reports. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
The objective of the thesis was to explore whether the disclosure of derivatives transactions in company annual reports provides users with information that is useful, and to the extent that they do not, identify possible reasons. User perceptions of usefulness were examined through in-depth interviews, complemented by an analysis of the evolution of applicable international accounting standards over a ten-year period. Findings from both studies highlight that the disclosure of risk management strategies and risk exposures are demanded by users, and resisted by companies.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
