The Securities and Exchange Commission announced today that Vanguard Group Chairman and CEO John J. Brennan will be the keynote speaker at the Commission's March 19 roundtable on the use of interactive data by public companies and mutual funds to improve disclosure for individual investors. Mr. Brennan is expected to discuss how the new interactive data will allow investors to easily gather and compare mutual fund risk and return information, including costs and performance that might otherwise be buried deep within disclosure documents.
The Commission welcomes feedback on any aspect of the use of interactive data. The information that is submitted will become part of the public record of the roundtable. For further information, see Commission Announces March 19 Roundtable: Creating Interactive Data to Serve Investors.
