In early 1998, Frank Casey joined Rampart Investments, where he met portfolio managers Harry Markopolos and Neil Chelo. The three formed the core team that began blowing the whistle to the SEC on Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme in May of 2000.
In this session, Casey will share the inside story of how he and his colleagues exposed the Ponzi scheme and how their efforts to draw regulatory attention to the matter went unanswered. He will examine why due diligence by regulators and hedge funds failed, suggest what needs to be done to prevent the situation from repeating itself, and discuss lessons we can all learn from the Madoff scandal.
Who you should bring: you, your finance team, your management team, your financial advisors, anyone that is interested in the inside scoop of a story that is still widely discussed years later.
