At the June 4 opening session of the annual Center for Asset Management Conference, in a speech titled “Madoff and the Math that Uncovered the World’s Largest Ponzi Scheme,” Harry Markopolos, MS’97 (center), recounted his decade-long effort to uncover the truth of convicted investment manager Bernard Madoff’s business dealings and trigger action on the part of government regulators. Markopolos told the audience of some 100 leaders of financial service firms, media, and University faculty, “I still have trouble getting a full night’s sleep.” Above, at a reception in the Murray Function Room prior to his speech, Markopolos (center) talked with associate professor of finance Edith Hotchkiss (left) and Andy Boynton, dean of the Carroll School of Management.
