Program Description

Competent forensic operators know the financial forensics doctrine implies two principles espoused by the definition: “The art & science of investigating people & money©”. Patterns establish the linkage and reflect the inherent relationships between people and money. Patterns are ubiquitous within forensic assignments and transcend financial data and comprise virtually any kind of data.

This podcast demonstrates how patterns are identified and measured using one or a combination of visual, time, and variation techniques. The tools, techniques, methods, and methodologies exhibited apply to all aspects of financial forensics, including valuation, damages, fraud, attest, financial statement misrepresentation, corruption, et al.

While the recording is audio only, you will have access to the materials from the class as a PDF.
