About Lafferty Global

Under the direction of Michael Lafferty, a chartered accountant, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and former banking and accounting correspondent of the Financial Times of London, the broader Lafferty Group has played a leadership role in international accounting journalism and publishing for several decades.

Michael Lafferty founded the newsletters International Accounting Bulletin and Management Consultant International as well as numerous banking and financial services titles.

In addition, Michael Lafferty has published several international studies of corporate accounting practices.
The decision to re-enter the field of accounting publishing has been taken by Michael Lafferty because of a belief that the broader accounting profession "needs an independent global forum to monitor professional developments worldwide. This is particularly the case because of the proliferation of corporate scandals we are now experiencing".

Lafferty Global Ltd. Company Number: 11442620.
