Encyclopedia > Misleading financial analysis

Financial analysis of an organisation is misleading when it is used to misrepresent the organisation, its situation or its prospects.

This type of deceit is sometimes used to obtain money by misdirecting people to invest in a stock market bubble, profiting (or assisting others to profit) from the increase in value, then removing funds before the bubble collapses, for instance in a stock market crash.

Regulators exist to try to prevent such fraud.
