International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is a principles-based set of international accounting standards for reporting financial information. IFRS is issued by the International Accounting Standards Board in an effort to increase global comparability of financial statements and results. IFRS is used by Jackson's parent to report the Group's financial results. Jackson's IFRS results are consolidated in its parent's IFRS financial statements, which are audited. Jackson does not produce standalone audited IFRS financial statements.
