THE DARK SIDE OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS Programme Overview: This program has been one of the most popular across CFA societies around the world. It is also a preview of the upcoming two-day intensive Strategic Valuation & Fundamental Investing Masterclass scheduled for 29 & 30 June (Wednesday and Thursday). GAAP, IAS, and IFRS Financial Statements don't report economic reality. Instead, they provide a collection of mis-categorized, inconsistently measured, and misunderstood metrics that distort financial analysis. When financial statements are properly adjusted to the purpose of the analysis - systematically and manually removing the accounting distortions - one gains an entirely new understanding of business strategy and performance. Return and growth measures, credit health, and valuation analysis take on a new light. Seemingly endless controversies around the cost of capital, use of multiples, terminal values, and DCF models seem far more reasonably solvable. The goal is the achievement of an extremely practical framework for fundamental financial research. As a participant in the CFA Institute Approved-Provider Program, CFA Singapore has determined that this event qualifies for 1 credit hour. If you are a CFA Institute member, CE credit for your attendance at this event will be automatically recorded in your CE diary.
