Investment Management Club is delighted to invite you to a conversation with Dr. Howard Schilit. Mr. Schilit is a pioneer in the field of detecting accounting tricks in corporate financial reports that mislead investors. He is the author of Financial Shenanigans: How to Detect Accounting Gimmicks & Fraud in Financial Reports, (originally published in 1993 and now in its 4th Edition) - a required reading in the CFA curriculum. Howard was the founder and CEO of CFRA, a global forensic accounting research organization. He has been a leading spokesman before the US Congress, the SEC, and global media outlets about the causes and early warning signs of accounting tricks in public filings. Dr. Schilit began his career as an Associate Professor of Accounting at American University and continues to teach and lecture all over the world. Dr. Schilit holds his doctorate in Accounting from the University of Maryland.

Schilit Forensics is an expert forensic accounting consultancy serving institutional investors and corporations. Services include customized and proprietary due diligence research based on forensic accounting analysis and training programs. Over the past 20 years, the Schilit team has uncovered some of the most egregious accounting frauds of the past generation, and also provided early warnings on scores of other companies that used unusual or aggressive accounting practices to mask operational deterioration.

Dr. Schilit is keen to have an engaged audience. We request you to tune in with your cameras on and to come prepared with questions. Registered attendees will receive a copy of Dr. Schilit's presentation by 10pm on 5th of May.
