Mapping in for the New Year 2015

Mapping in for the New Year 2015

The Key Points was originally the Launch point for Our Lines at DCarsonCPA as a centralized line to follow the points of updates where Financials and new regulations were meeting at that point.

We built strong skills with the lines for points to support Compliance and Legal Workflows in compliment to Financials and the needs on Strong Controls for Risk Management in the Financial and other sectors.

The journey we undertook to learn  about ALL of the points where Financials, Legal, Economics, IT and Communications meet for Industry, Non Profits, NGOs, Governments (Local, Multi-State, National and Global) was a rewrding one with many different directions and a substantial amount of resources and energy placed to Research working with Financials, Laws, Rules, Economics, Statistics and some to the best minds in Industry, Non Profit, NGO and Government lines to fill in the Gaps on Our Awareness on Calls, In Journals, On Research and mossaic sourced Analysis. We worked from a perspective of learning more about the many points where Financials are at work to help on needs on growth in the Economy.

Through the key points grew our interests and commitments to find ways to help Entities succeed more on growth with efficiency, and to find ways to help on the Economy where Our skills connect.

These days you can find many of the key points as follows:

Covering Global and Domestic Economics, Financials, Legal Support Services, Project Management and Business Analysis (w/ IT Data and Cyber Security Lines along with Communications, Data, Research and Analysis), Core Financials, Tax Services lines and more. Our Business Model is based on Services, Research and Outreach to help on the Economy, Efficiency, Growth and Improvements as evolving on the pathway of Global Decision Making Research and the cross functional skills are also well suited for Risk Management and Deep Support lines to Economic and Policy Research as we grow to include Economic and Legal skills to a strong base of now 20+ years on Financials.

We trained up for the Leadership lines for Boards, Directors, Senior Management and the Staff Development points for the Industry lines and for the Executive, Legislative and Judicial points on Financials to optimally understand the moving parts of Industry, Government, Non Profits,NGOs and Individuals / Families and Communities working together in the Economy as we evolved a reduction template of Global Decision Making Research for most any needs where we meet on Services, Research and Outreach.

The Result of which is strong problem solving skills for on demand needs and a very large ability to help on challenges where cross sector lines meet Economics, Statistics, Financials, Laws,Rules and Governance and the IT lines help for Services, Research and Outreach.

We can help on Strategic needs at the overview level or map to specific lines of needs in more detail depending on Client needs on demand.

Tax Season 2015 is expected to be a challenging year based on IRS needs and budgets. Fortunately we began on the Tax lines several years back and mapped the strong lines of comprehensive research to be an Asset to Clients in times like these and we can help on Entity and Individual / Family lines of needs with strong skills on Tax Services. We've built strong skills through daily lines of research as overlays to a strong foundation of core skills in CFO/ Controlling and Lean Management Consulting and the net result is many a way to help on needs through Financials, Tax, Compliance and Managerial Accounting skills. The mapped in overlay is deep Economic, Legal, IT, Financial, Finance and Societal Research skills focused on the value of Financials to needs across sectors and those are skills that can help at many a varied point in the Economy for Leadership lines of Entity needs and related lines on Project Services and Research.]

Insider Trading, know the Rules and related notes.

In light of news events today with the WSJ Blog reported conviction of the Founder of Galleon on 14 Insider Trading charges (link to WSJ source http://blogs.wsj.com/marketbeat/2011/05/11/raj-rajaratnam-convicted-what-kind-of-time-are-we-talking/?mod=google_news_blog ), it creates a good opportunity to return to some points we had mentioned before on Twitter and on our FB Page in previous posts. CPAs are bound to high standards as Licensed professionals, in our education process we learn about Accounting, Business Law, Tax Law, Finance, Business Formation and more, much of this to avoid issues like "Insider Trading" and other issues in Business (through Knoweldge of and Compliance with the Rules).


For CPAs (like myself) with specific area expertise in Financial Services we go on to learn more about SEC Laws, FINRA Rules, Capital Markets, Securities and other related factors. In any Financial Services business and for all Investors in Capital Markets a very key and central Law is regarding "Insider Trading," the goal of which is to create a level playing field for Investors so that Market Participants with "Insider Information" are prohibited from Trading on that knowledge (and taking monetary gains on material non-public information) until it becomes Public Information (the goal is preventing Insiders from taking advantage of less informed Investors in the General Public). The best source for background on this is in my opinion the SEC itself follow this link the SEC on "Insider Trading" to Learn more http://www.sec.gov/answers/insider.htm.



Since the SEC is a key part of Financial Market Regulation. If you are an Investor or a participant in Financial Markets, you must know the rules so be sure to know all you can on "Insider Trading" and commit to not becoming a part of Insider Trading to best protect your Financial Assets, Individual Freedom and your Business Reputation all of which are valuable Assets.



On a related note of Interest, since part of what we are doing in career development is pursuing the CFA designation, we can also tell you that a portion of a CFAs preparation path at level 1 is dedicated to thoroughly understanding the rules of Insider Trading so as not to arrive in a position later down the road as an Investment Analyst or Portfolio Manager where you would violate these rules. Portfolio Managers, Reserchers and Analysts and others who are CFAs place significant care on the importance of not violating "Insider Trading" rules. 



We believe that the SEC is a best source of definitions on "Insider Trading" so their link is provided here, but suffice to say that possession of Material Non-Public Information (as was indicated in the WSJ article on the Galleon / Rajaratnam case also cited above), followed by an action to Trade on that Information or Encourage others to Trade on that information would bring you into the Realm of Insider Trading. Insider Trading is about Information and the desire of our government to maintain a level playing field in Financial Markets where Financial Experts are restrained in ways that they expect will support Investor Protection by providing equal information opportunity.



While the SEC provides a key role in segments of Financial Market Regulation, there are also other relevant govenment regulators to consider in other Market Areas. For the context of our discussion here we are Focused on the SEC and their role on Insider Trading on Capital Markets, we would also like to introduce that FINRA a Self Regulating Organization (SRO) is the Financial Industries oversight body which functions to also protect Investors and diminish Insider Trading Operations by assisting in the Control of Market Data information by limiting channels for Insider Communications and otherwise protecting Investors.
