Market Abuse

Market abuse may arise in circumstances where financial investors have been unreasonably disadvantaged, directly or indirectly, by others who:

  • have used information which is not publicly available (insider dealing)
  • have distorted the price-setting mechanism of financial instruments
  • have disseminated false or misleading information.

Market Abuse is split into two different aspects (Under EU definitions):

  1. Insider dealing
Where a person who has information not available to other investors (e.g. a Director with knowledge of a takeover bid) makes use of that information for personal gain.
  1. Market manipulation
Where a person knowingly gives out false or misleading information (For instance about a company's financial circumstances) in order to influence the price of a share for personal gain;

In addition, Money laundering may be considered a form of market abuse.

    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)

    Have you not heard of that madman who lit a lantern in the bright morning hours, ran to the market place, and cried incessantly: “I seek God! I seek God!”
