Annual reports past it

Research from the Australasian Investor Relations Association has found that almost 80 per cent of investors don't think that it is important to get a printed copy of company's annual reports as long as the information is available on the internet. Fewer than half the people who receive a printed copy of an annual report actually read all of it and 18 per cent don't read any of it. New federal laws mean that investors will have to ask to receive a printed copy of an annual report if it is available online.
