Find Out How Financial Decisions Impact Stakeholders at MCAA2020

November 21, 2019

When is it acceptable to engage in a transaction that technically complies with the rules but may be misleading? Can a transaction that technically complies with the rules be considered unethical or illegal? Is it ever appropriate to depart from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)? Andrew Fastow will cite examples of such transactions at major companies, he will discuss the rationalizations made by executives to justify their decisions and he will discuss examples of how these decisions can cause great harm to stakeholders. MCAA thanks Apollo Valves for sponsoring this speaker. Learn more about Fastow and find out what else is in store at MCAA2020 on our convention website.
