What’s the course about?

Market Abuse

The Market Abuse Regulations prohibit insider dealing and unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation. This compliance e-learning for market abuse is critical for individuals and the organisations they represent. It helps protect them from costly mistakes that could result in fines or even imprisonment.

This Market Abuse e-learning course focuses on this important regulation and helps ensure costly mistakes related to investing in stocks and shares are avoided.


Why use this course?

Dealing in stocks and shares can be a risky business and traders deserve to conduct business in a fair and honest marketplace. This means the perpetrators of dishonest practices face severe penalties.

The two types of market abuse are insider dealing and market manipulation. These are serious criminal offences that can lead to fines and imprisonment. It is important to recognise this and avoid doing anything illegal.

Firms must have proper controls and procedures in place to prevent, identify and report market abuse. These processes are further supported by this e-learning.
