by Thomas R. Robinson, PhD, CFA
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
5:00 to 8:30 PM
Join us on Tuesday, November 13 for a special evening with Thomas R. Robinson, PhD, CFA, of CFA Institute. Dr. Robinson's presentation, A Forensic Accounting Framework for Detecting Accounting Problems, will discuss the warning signs and red flags of accounting games played by companies, with global case studies. He will present typical accounting games played by companies, using real company examples, and how many of the problems can be detected by understanding how the financial statements fit together.
The presentation will include:
- How financial statements “articulate” or fit together
- Typical accounting games played by companies with global (and a few South Florida) examples but an emphasis on recent Asia-Pacific cases
- A framework for examining a company for potential problems
- Warning signs and red flags to look for
Before dinner, Tom will present CFA charters to new charter recipients and give a brief presentation about the CFA Charter and its increasing global footprint and importance.
