Is insider dealing a thing of the past?

Over the last few weeks we have seen the Financial Services Authority [FSA] announce a number of convictions and a number of arrests with regards to insider dealing and market abuse. While there is no doubt that great advances have been made in these particular areas of the regulatory sector in the UK, have we really seen the last of insider trading and market abuse?

Sadly the truth is that insider trading and market abuse have been around since the beginning of time and despite significant success for the FSA over the last few months it will be a constant battle to maintain control of investment markets around the world. It is not only the FSA which has a job on its hands in the future because insider trading, market abuse and of such investment markets irregularities are happening all around the world.

A few years ago there were grave concerns that the FSA was losing too many court cases with regards to alleged insider trading although thankfully this issue has been turned on its head over the last few months. The FSA has never been more successful regarding insider trading and market abuse convictions and many people hope and pray that this continues for the months and years ahead.

Insider trading is not a victimless crime despite what many people would have you believe because for each buyer there is a seller and somebody has to lose out when large insider trading profits are crystallised.
