FRC Statement on issues raised in report on Lehman Brothers
15 March 2010
Following the publication of the recent report on Lehman Brothers, the FRC is ascertaining the facts on how the “Repo” transactions were accounted for and audited in the UK in order to determine any implications. To that end, we have asked Ernst & Young to provide further information in relation to what happened in the UK.
