In economic terms, investments refer to the using monetary asset with the hope that it will increase in value via earnings, dividends, or other form of capital and/or benefits. There are instances, however, when an individual is presented with an investment opportunity under false pretenses, which would be based on benefits that are knowingly fraudulent by the investee. Investment expert witnesses are experienced with various areas within the financial field, as rules and regulations of the industry may become highly relevant in the event of an investments-related court case.
Investment expert witnesses are licensed and/or certified as accountants, valuation analysts, real estate brokers, real estate appraisers, insurance brokers, financial planners, financial analysts, investment analysts, and other related professions. Real estate is especially relevant to the investment field, as properties are often the subject of an investment with the expectation that the value of said property will increase in the future. Real estate appraisal and real estate valuation are therefore very important, as they assess the current worth of the invested property, as well as forecast the potential returns of the proposed investment.
Investments expert witnesses are also experienced with different variations of the discipline, including hedge funds, stocks, securities, and other investment options. Knowledge of business practices is important to the field, as investments are often made in a company with the expectation of future growth and profit.
