About the PCAOB’s Investor Advisory Group

At Right Advisory LLC, knowledgeable professionals support client companies in audit processes, governance, and general finance. Right Advisory LLC’s president currently serves on the investor advisory group of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).

Established by the United States government to oversee public company audits with the goal of protecting investors, the PCAOB created an investor advisory group to weigh in on important investor-related issues. The group consists of acknowledged experts in the field of investment and serves as a vehicle to inform the Board as a whole. This information becomes part of the policy development of the Board and is also a key factor in the decisions that appear in its annual report.

The investor advisory group, or IAG, consists of approximately 15 professionals who have repeatedly demonstrated a dedication to the interests of investors. Each individual must serve the organization as an independent entity to preserve objectivity. Members further agree to avoid influencing Board members or staff and to refrain from contributing in matters that represent a conflict of interest. Members meet annually or semi-annually or as the need arises.
