  4. 4. BE A CSI and STOP the ROT 0 2 0 9 The Financial Crisis towards the end of 2008 is a plain and simple case poor regulatory supervisison, failure in compliance and internal audit and mis- management of the banks. In order for Financial Institutions to hide as much in liabilities as they wanted, all these firms had to do was to create various types of special purpose entities (SPEs) in which they did not have a controlling interest. In other words, if Bradley-Bingly and Lehman Brothers create a company in which they each take a 50% interest, neither company, technically, has a controlling interest. Since the mortgage-backed securities that these companies created or bought were sold to investors, in many instances these SPEs were extremely lax in their underwriting standards. Subprime, Alt-A, interest- only and adjustable mortgages with very low teaser rates were given to unqualified home buyers, then packaged and sold to unwary investors. Let the buyer beware. Meanwhile, these SPEs were sending profits up to their joint owners, and executives at these companies were making big bonuses based on spectacular reported earnings. But as the orgy of lending got so out of hand that buyers of securitized mortgages began to balk, the plans went awry. The execs in big banks couldn't stand to let the orgy end; so, they started guaranteeing the securities in order to get them sold. These guarantees eliminated their protection from the blowback of securities gone bad. Now the liabilities could end up on their balance sheets. Not surprisingly, many did. That's how we got here. That's why investors will take hits in the hundreds of billions of dollars, and why taxpayers will pay in higher taxes or higher inflation or both. A few top executives will get fired, but they’re not giving back their bonus money, even though all the profits the bonuses were based on have evaporated along with billions of dollars of market capitalization. YOU can stop this from happening again. Be a CSI.
  5. 5. > Why Become a CSI ? > What is CSI (Certified System Investigator)? In most cases, a CSI is someone who has completed a programme of study and practical trainings in the CSI, passed the Uniform CSI Examinations and obtained high standard of professional work experience in the field. Due to the high standard of this certifying programme, it is becoming a much sought after benchmark in the financial market. This is an industrial recognition that CPAs, CFEs, CFAs, etc. seek to be certified. three critical body ok knowledge. Namely, Black Belt in Financial Analysis Black Belt in SEATA Black Belt in Data Analytics and Digital Forensics Enthusiastic internal and external auditors - and IT auditors - are using the knowledge from this certification programme to bring value-added services to their clients and corporations.Financial and IT institutions operate within global markets, where change and competitive pressures are constant. One key corporate strategy is to build up internal business competencies. Having people with the right competencies (the right knowledge, skills and attitude to perform specific job functions) who understand the markets and the operations, and can navigate through the intricacies of the market place is fundamental for financial institutions to ensure their long-term growth and success. Our objective is to increase the existing pool of competent industrial practitioners who can perform to international standards through a series of structured software training programmes.
