Make better business decisions
Be a better investor
When the story falls apart, it falls apart fast. Time and time again, we see that the warning signs were always there. And yet, somehow, the market responds with great surprise when the reality of underlying business challenges and deteriorating fundamentals eventually surface.
Over the past twenty years, we have trained regulators, portfolio managers, enforcement officers, business professionals, bank lending professionals, legal professionals, investment advisors, accountants, university students and individual investors.
The objective of our training is to help you make better business and investment decisions. We use real-life examples and walk participants through actual financial statements to teach you how to proactively identify warning signs in the accounting and assess their potential impact on reported results and shareholders.
Participants benefit from our experience in identifying blow-ups often long before they occur.
Our latest course embodies the Veritas Credo:
Companies do not fail because of accounting manipulation.
But when a management team uses accounting maneuvers, it is usually because the underlying operations are not sustainable.
Not since WWII has there been an exogenous force that has wreaked such havoc on the global economy. Government support stimuli have cushioned the decline, but the longer the economy takes to grow into the stock market’s valuation, the more apt a management team will be to use accounting techniques to ensure that stakeholders do not become impatient. The next two or three quarters will be key.
In this training, you will learn how to apply our forensic analysis framework to uncover companies that are:
• Inflating Cash Flows and Earnings
• Managing Loan Loss Provisions
• Boosting Same-Store Sales
• Avoiding Interest Expenses
• Covering Up Bad Debt
We also explore the blow-ups of Carillion and Wirecard.
