WHAT IS INSIDER TRADING?
Insider trading generally refers to a situation where someone has traded in stocks or other securities (e.g. bonds or stock options) of a public company whilst being privy to ‘inside information’, not yet in the public domain, which could have a significant impact on the stocks or securities of that company if it was made public.
Due to the complexities of regulations around insider trading, genuine mistakes can be made, and you could find yourself being unexpectedly being investigated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and facing serious penalties.
As every situation is different if you are being, or are about to be, investigated for insider trading you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR INSIDER TRADING?
Penalties vary depending on the seriousness of the case, and penalties for serious cases can be severe, including lengthy custodial sentences and unlimited fines.
In addition, the FCA publish enforcement notices on their website which include details of insider trading cases. These notices are available to the general public, which means anyone could visit the FCA site and see certain details about the FCA investigation into your case.
