7 INSIDER TRADING IN ADVANCED COUNTRIES Insider dealing: corporate insiders buy and sell stock in their own companies. Market abuse: trading a security in breach of a fiduciary duty or trust while in possession of nonpublic information. It includes tipping and tuyautage". Insider dealing is LEGAL in the U.S. if only if trading activity is reported to the SEC Tipping and tuyautage by banks and financial intermediaries are LEGAL (and common) in Japan, but they are ILLEGAL in the U.S. and in the U.E. Japan announced new insider trading regulations in a year s time, enforcing criminal penalties and heavy fines

9 FAMOUS AND RECENT EPISODES In , Rajat Gupta (former Goldman Sachs) tipped Raj Rajaratnam (Galleon hedge fund) for $90m of illegal profits. On November 28, 2011, Rajaratnam was sent to jail (11 years + $10m penalty). On October 25, 2012, Gupta was sent to jail (2 years + $5m penalty) In July 2012, top executives at Nomura resigned. The staff had leaked insider information about new share issues planned by Tepco, Inpex and Mizuho, in 2010 Italian managers of MPS, Saipem and RCS are currently under investigation for insider dealing and market abuse In the U.S. the FBI is investigating on the takeover of the ketchup producer H.J. Heinz Co. by Warren Buffett holding Berkeshire Hathaway (February, 2013)

13 IN SUPPORT OF INSIDER TRADING MILTON FRIEDMAN, 2003 You want more insider trading, not less. You want to give the people most likely to have knowledge about deficiencies of the company an incentive to make the public aware of that. Investors benefit from insider trading since nonpublic information is immediately incorporated in the price > Efficient Market Hypothesis (Fama, J. Finance, 1991) Trading where one party is more informed than the other is legal in other markets, such as real estate or commodity markets
