Market Abuse

Market Abuse is a concept that encompasses unlawful behaviour in the financial market and damages transparency. It includes insider trading, market manipulation and the unlawful disclosure of privileged information.

The Market Abuse European Regulation 596/2014 and the Directive 2014/57/EU on the criminal penalties applicable to market abuse, focuses on harmonizing the rules and follow the developments in the financial markets after the 2008 crisis. The requirements for the prevention of market abuse are directly applicable through the Regulation.

How market abuse disrupts investors confidence


Nowadays, financial markets have become increasingly global, giving rise to new trading platforms and technologies. This has led, among others, to alternative ways to manipulate financial markets.

Market abuse is in the scope of the European legislator as it destroys the integrity of the market and leads to financial instability. Investors must be protected from any manipulation and must feel the confidence to invest in the EU market.

The Regulation clearly states that professionals and investment firms must have efficient "arrangements, systems and procedures aimed at preventing and detecting insider dealing...".

A characteristic example of manipulation are cases of manipulation of interest rate benchmarks such as LIBOR and EURIBOR. The Benchmarks Regulation 2016/2011 of the EU came as a response to many allegations for benchmarks manipulation.

Our professionals assist you in establishing and maintaining systems and procedures compliant with the applicable legal framework, to avoid any implications and eliminate the market abuse risk. Market abuse prevention requires a combination of legal, financial and IT knowledge, that Pideeco offers.
