SCIP Massachusetts/Boston Chapter Presents
“The Madoff Whistleblower”
Hult International Business School Wednesday, February 9, 2011 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Harry Markopolos, CFA, CFE, is an independent financial fraud investigator who brings fraud cases to the US Department of Justice, Internal Revenue Service and various State Attorney Generals under existing whistleblower programs. He has been featured in the leading business media, including Wall Street Journal, CNBC, and Bloomberg, and he has provided testimony before the United States Congress.
The Madoff investigation was his first financial fraud case, which he started in early 2000. He’s been hooked ever since. Mr. Markopolos is co-author of the best selling book “No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller” published by Wiley & Sons, Inc.; March 2010. The film documentary about his Madoff investigative team, “The Foxhounds: The Pursuit of Bernie Madoff” premiered in November 2010 at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.
In 2000, Harry Markopolos recruited and led a four-man team of industry experts to track Bernie Madoff's $65 billion feeder fund network across two continents. This team's eight-and-one-half year long investigation identified dozens of Madoff feeder funds which were delivering a steady stream of new victims to Madoff's doorstep on a daily basis. Most of their intelligence was gathered in person at industry events, conferences, and during meetings. (In fact, very little of their investigation took place on the internet and there was a reason for that – Madoff was so secretive that he made sure that none of these feeder funds was mentioning him by name in their marketing efforts.) Mr. Markopolos will speak about the case from an intelligence gathering standpoint and take your questions.
Mr. Markopolos will also sign your copy of his book, No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller, detailing his investigation. There will be no books for purchase.
