Meet the Speaker:

Allen has over 25 years experience in the financial industry and has been involved in the analysis and determination of accounting policy for complex financial instruments and investments.  At Wells Fargo he has been involved in highly structured transactions such as Nevada Solar One, the largest solar plant built in the world in the last sixteen years and the first leveraged lease for a US Solar farm. Earlier this year his accounting conclusions helped to facilitate a joint venture between Bank of America and Wells Fargo to process automated-clearinghouse payments through a company called Pariter Solutions. His insights and views are now being called upon as Wells Fargo merges with Wachovia. He also has been an instructor in the Wells Fargo Finance University, and also provides internal training and education on International Financial Reporting Standards.  Allen has a Masters in Project Management from Keller Graduate School of Business in Chicago and is a CPA with an extensive consulting background. At Allstate Insurance, he authored over 25 research papers and developed their FAS 133 and EITF 99-20 policies. At Barrick Gold Corporation, the largest producer of gold in the world, Allen worked in Barbados to develop their Worldwide Consolidation policies under FIN 46(R) and convert their financial statements to US GAAP as a part of maintaining their International Bank Charter. Allen also developed Barrick's Normal Sales policy, which influenced their decision to release gold hedges to capture upside potential of the metal.
