Deviations from Ethical Norms – David Mobley’ Maricopa Index Hedge Fund was the world’s top-rated investment vehicle. Unbeknownst to investors and the world in general, it was a massive fraud.

How does this happen and most importantly, how can you prevent yourself from sliding down the slippery slope from which there is no escape. In this course, we will use the Maricopa Index Hedge Fund case study to explore the hidden ways your brain can work against your ethical baseline and most importantly, how to prevent deviations from your ethical profile before it becomes too late. No advance preparation needed.
