The Hong Kong Institute of CPAs interviews Chris Fordham as part of a series “The Specialists: Forensic Accounting.” In this video intervioew, Chris explains how the “increasing complexity of business transactions is translating into more complex fraud schemes potentially.” Chris also discusses how data analytics helps us “play out and analyse the data” to find different aspects of suspicious transactions. “Things like that just didn’t exist 10 years ago,” he says. Clients “expect us to know how their business works within a very short period of time so that takes a lot of social and communication skills.”
Chris Fordham is a Founding Member of the HKICPA’s Forensics Interest Group and he recently joined Alvarez & Marsal as a Managing Director of the Asia Disputes & Investigations team.
