  • Who should attend the workshop?

    Any investor who wants to avoid mistakes of investing in bad companies/fraud managements

  • What will I learn from the workshop?

    A systematic way to detect accounting frauds in companies How to analyze the “management quality”

  • What is the learning methodology?

    Learning methodology will be through case studies using live Indian examples. I believe theory is useless, unless one practices it regularly. Unless one really gets their hands dirty, one does not learn. The workshop will discuss specific Indian case studies and derive the general principles of detecting financial fraud and corporate governance issues. When you discover the methods and means of corporate mis-governance in specific cases, you will walk away with a system to quickly detect corporate governance issues in any company you analyze.

  • Is there a pre-requisite? Should I have studied accounting in school?

    Accounting is the language of business. Without the knowledge of accounting, one cannot imagine detecting financial fraud. However, only the most basic concepts in accounting are required to become a good investor. To attend this workshop, one need not have studied accounting in school. You have to be a fundamental investor who reads annual reports

  • What should I read before attending the workshop?

    You may want to brush-up your basics of accounting. The best source to do this is read Section 1 of the book "Five Rules of Successful Investing" by Pat Dorsey
