Forensics Interest Group

Forensic accounting is an expanding field of specialisation and one to which accountants should be well suited, given their training and knowledge. There is interest, not only among forensics practitioners, but also within the regulatory and the business sectors, in a specialist forum to provide support and professional development to this sector.

 

With the support of members working in the forensics field, the Institute formed a Forensics Forum in May 2011 as a pilot scheme to gauge the level of interest and active participation by members in setting up and running a forensics group and further developing services in this specialised area.

 

The Forensics Forum quickly generated interest and attracted a substantial membership among professionals. Given this support, the Institute decided to turn the Forensics Forum into a more permanent Forensics Interest Group ("ForensIG") in 2012.

 

Objectives and scope

The main objectives of the ForensIG are to stimulate interest in and promote awareness of forensics services, and to enhance the support for a forensics specialisation and the development of high-quality of forensics services in Hong Kong. The focus is primarily on applying accounting, auditing, finance, and quantitative analytical knowledge and skills to issues arising in the context of civil and criminal litigation and investigations, covering risk management, fraud investigation, litigation support, dispute analysis, and expert witness services.

 

For further details of the interest group, read the information sheet.
