‘Insider Dealing’ is the illegal practice of trading on the stock exchange to one’s own advantage through having access to confidential information.

The practice includes activities such as dealing whilst in possession of inside information, encouraging others to deal in such circumstances and the disclosure of information assisting in such conduct, other than in the proper performance of employment.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the primary agency charged with taking regulatory or criminal action action against those accused of these offences.

Following the conclusion, in 2016, of the largest investigation in to insider dealing, ‘https://www.fca.org.uk/news/press-releases/two-convicted-insider-dealing-operation-tabernula-trial‘ the FCA are increasing their efforts to initiate prosecutions against those involved in insider dealing.

This highlighted case involved an individual who worked in succession for Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers and Deutsche Bank during the period subject to investigation.

The FCA is equipped with a wide range of criminal investigative powers to conduct   exhaustive interviews of suspects, share  information with overseas agencies, execute dawn raids, restrain international and domestic bank accounts and extradite suspects to the UK.

The offence of Insider Dealing carries a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment or an unlimited fine.
