CFA Institute Live Webinars Presentation Recorded 18 Jan 2018
India’s listed universe has been expanding at a rapid pace. The longer tail of well-capitalized companies has created an inevitable demand for expertise in identifying good companies. Importantly, like other markets around the world, India has its own burden of financial shenanigans. Understanding forensic methods to assess accounting quality is an essential learning outcome for investment decision makers. Saurabh Mukherjea, CFA, CEO, Ambit Capital, will share his rich insights on how accounting books in India can be managed to mislead. Saurabh's intuitive framework is a comprehensive screening tool for decision makers to stay away from companies with weaker accounting practices.
This is an archived version of a live webinar that took place on 18 January 2018.
