LJM among ‘Who’s Who’ in forensic accounting

ASEAN & Korea Advisory Quality & Risk Management Leader and Chief Risk Officer Leo Matignas (LJM) was interviewed by finance magazine Malaysian Business to solicit his expert opinion on the increasingly important role of forensic accounting in today’s business environment.

Leo discussed the intricacies of forensic accounting including the risks involved in investigating allegations of fraud. He likened this specialized branch of accounting to CSI where information is unveiled one by one as represented in the company’s records and studiously reviewed for quality in the event of any resulting legal implications.

Published on January 16, 2011, the interview was conducted following the recently held World Congress of Accountants 2010 in Kuala Lumpur. Leo was part of the panel on “Forensic Accounting: Addressing the Challenges in a Digital Environment,” alongside four other distinguished personalities in the accountancy field.
