About the Webinar

Financial shenanigans can range from creative interpretation of accounting rules to outright fraud. These actions can make a company’s credit risk look healthier than it really is and potentially go undetected for many years. This type of chicanery poses significant analytical challenges for credit professionals and has caused sizeable losses to the credit and investor community. For example, major cases in the recent past include Enron and WorldCom. During the webinar, Antje Seiffert-Murphy, CFA, of Equinox Global, will discuss types of financial shenanigans that include earnings manipulation and cash flow as well as explore ways to detect manipulations with the help of examples where companies reported false or misleading financial results.
