    Your financial service advisors uphold the highest ethical standards, and they can help you resist the temptation to alter reported financials in a way that, while misleading, can sometimes still be surprisingly in compliance with certain technical aspects of complex accounting, tax and securities regulations. In navigating the gray areas of accounting, what small justifications are you making that could put you at risk?

    Join Andrew Fastow, former chief financial officer of Enron, as he shares his story of structured finance transactions gone terribly wrong, and how approaches being used today by corporations the world over could be deemed ethically questionable. Andrew will discuss the steps he took in using the ambiguity among the rules to his advantage until it led to one of the largest accounting frauds in history. Learn how having the right perspective and striving to preserve the intentions behind the rules can help you avoid the same mistakes.
