Certified Stock Market Forensic Accountant

Certified Stock Market Forensic Accountant (CSMFA) is the specialization of Forensic Accounting certifications developed by Riskpro. Globally there are very few stock market courses that focus on stock market fraud. The nature and types of securities frauds are completely different and the scope of frauds ranges from insider trading to complicated trade matching schemes.

The financial statement is the base of any investment. Whether retail or institutional - investors look at the balance sheets and profit and loss accounts. There is big money involved in the stock markets. Manipulating the financial statement helps the companies to beat analyst expectations. This results in an artificial upward movement in share prices. Hence, the identification of financial statement fraud is a crucial aspect of stock markets.

Additionally, the Certified Stock Market Forensic Accountant is an arbitrator, investor, broker, trader, regulator or merchant banker, or any investment professional or Information Technology consultant who has undergone training to become an expert in the stock market fraud domain.

This certification is neither a Famous Frauds Project, nor is it about investment fraud examples. The course curriculum also includes forensic auditing related to the financial and capital market sector, litigation support, and investigative accounting.

Moreover, this certification program is one of the foremost certifications focusing on the capital market fraud domain.

Stock Frauds what went wrong?

In India, the Harshad Mehta scam, and Ketan Parekh fraud are the biggest scams that shook Indian stock markets. In early 2020, the Securities Exchange Board of India announced that it would refer all the cases related to forensic investigations to stock exchanges in addition to its forensic accounting teams. This development has opened the door of opportunities for forensic auditors to conduct investigations into the books of accounts of listed companies. On-going stock market illegal practices widen the scope of Certified Stock Market Forensic Accountants' services.
This program is created keeping in mind the ever-changing nature of the frauds in Indian stock markets over the last few decades. With the advent of technology, the nature of fraud in the stock markets is changing. When investors earn a good amount of profits in the stock markets they are tempted to diversify and start hunting for other investment options. Ponzi schemes, Mis-selling of investment products, and Pump and Dump schemes are investment fraud examples.

As the trades have become digital the nature of fraud in Indian stock markets has changed dramatically. Communication has become simple and the spreading of news or rumors and manipulating sentiments is becoming a common phenomenon.

Additionally, corporate failures teach us that most stock market frauds start with financial statement manipulations, hence this is one of the integral aspects of the curriculum.
