What makes my work exciting?
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) are developing all the time – despite increasingly stringent financial reporting requirements, investors still want reliable and timely reports. Amid this tension, management also needs to evaluate the impact of new IFRSs on their business model and operations and find appropriate solutions. 

How has the industry changed? What are the challenges of the future?
Accounting is also moving with technology, such as in the area of crypto-assets and their treatment under IFRS or the Swiss Code of Obligations.
