Schilit Forensics is an expert forensic accounting consultancy serving an elite group of investment firms. We are engaged to help unravel and explain accounting complexities and to detect companies that are misleading investors through accounting trickery.
Our firm was founded by Howard Schilit and is led by Jeremy Perler and Yoni Engelhart, pioneers and experts in the field of forensic accounting investment research and authors of Financial Shenanigans: How to Detect Accounting Gimmicks and Fraud in Financial Reports. The Schilit Forensics team has uncovered many of the most egregious accounting frauds of the past 30 years, and provided early warnings on hundreds of other companies that used aggressive accounting to mask business deterioration.
We advise some of the most successful and well-regarded asset managers globally including hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, mutual funds, and private equity funds. Our clients view us as an extension of their in-house research team, leveraging our expertise in forensic accounting analysis to help them make more informed and confident investment decisions.
