What Investors Need to Know about Audits
February 23, 2021 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm ESTFree - $25
About the Program:
Investors rely upon financial statements to analyze their current and proposed investments. Investors also rely upon the audit process to verify the reliability of these statements. Auditors are professionals trained to verify financial statements, but as we all know, unreliable financial statements have been a recurring problem.
We will have a series of experts explaining the state of today’s audit process, how it has and continues to changes over time, and what signals investors should look out for in evaluating financial statements to help identify possibly inaccurate statements.
