Summary note
  • Now that FASB Statement #115 - more commonly known as "mark-to-market" - is in place, you face a dual challenge. You've got to be ready to deal with the new reporting requirements for your portfolio and resulting changes in your investment philosophy which will affect you for years to come.
  • Mark-to-Market is a strategy guide to dealing with the new environment. It helps you assess your current situation as well as guiding the development of a portfolio which will succeed under FAS #115. To paint a complete picture, Mark-to-Market provides the essential background on the regulations and the accounting standards involved.
  • Let Mark-to-Market help you avoid FASB #115's double whammy of reduced portfolio flexibility and increased shareholder volatility. Inside you'll find an in-depth discussion on the best alternatives open to financial institutions. Mark-to-Market doesn't just help you brace for the immediate changes; it helps you set a course for the future.
