Summary This book provides a detailed and practical analysis of Australian insider trading laws. The work: examines all fundamental concepts relating to insider trading such as 'who is an insider', 'what is inside information' and 'when is information generally available', together with commentaries on proposed changes to the laws and an examination of the impact of the most recent decisions, including Hannes, and Rivkin; provides a very detailed examination of the defences and exceptions, with particular attention to the operation of Chinese Walls; analyses fully and systematically the provisions on insider trading in the Corporations Act and the Criminal Code (Cth) within the context of decided cases and relevant secondary materials; covers comprehensively the penalties and remedies for contravention of the insider trading regime (including the intricate civil compensation provisions, and an up-to-date analysis of the civil penalties regime in light of ASIC v Petsas); and discusses the operation and effectiveness of continuous disclosure as a means of preventing insider trading.
Notes 1. Introduction -- 2. The operation of the current legislative provisions -- 3. The exceptions and defences to the prohibition -- 4. Penalties and remedies -- 5. Enforcement and the interrelationship between insider trading and continuous disclosure.
