The book examines the regulation of insider dealing in the developed jurisdictions, using three of the G7 countries as guides with the aim of knowing how they have regulated insider trading and what lessons can be learnt from their failures and achievements. It looks at regulatory regimes in the US, the UK and Japan in order to consider whether these regimes can be successfully transplanted to developing countries. In order to explore insider dealing in the developing world the book focuses on Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation and second largest economy. This book examines in theoretical and empirical terms the law on insider trading away from the dogmatic approach of Western literature by presenting the subject from the prism of a developing jurisdiction in post-colonial Africa with a divergent cultural, historical, social, political and economic background. The author analyses what shape insider dealing takes in Nigeria, a predominantly illiterate society, and considers the groups involved. The books also explores how the concept of insider dealing regulation is understood amongst parties integral to its administration and enforcement such as lawyers, judges, stockbrokers, and ordinary investors. The legislation governing insider dealing regulation in Nigeria is critically examined to expose its strengths and weaknesses, and to see how foreign provisions and legislation have been incorporated. The book uses Nigerian experiences to consider its implications for other developing nations, arguing that regulatory regimes need to take into account the specific social, political, historical and economic factors of a particular locale rather than importing regulations wholesale from developed jurisdictions.

The Future of Domestic Capital Markets in Developing Countries addresses the challenges that countries face as they develop and strengthen capital markets. Based on input from the world's most prominent capital market experts and leading policymakers in developing countries, this volume represents the latest thinking in capital market development. It captures the views of a global gathering of experts, with perspectives from developing and developed countries, from all regions of the world, from the public and private sector. This volume should be of interest to senior financial sector policymakers from developed and developing countries in securities and exchange commissions, regulators, central banks, ministries of finance, and monetary authorities; private sector executives in stock exchanges, bond markets, venture capital markets, and investment funds; and researchers and academicians with an interest in capital market development in emerging markets. What are the key factors threatening the development and survival of stock exchanges in developing countries? What domestic strategies are needed to protect the future of local markets? Should exchanges consider linkages or alliances? Merging with, or buying up, other exchanges? Demutualization? The volume provides practical guidance on strategies such as nurturing issuers, improving rules and institutions, addressing regulatory challenges, and sequencing reforms. The contributors address a variety of country experiences, and suggest steps that policymakers and practitioners in emerging markets can take to promote an orderly transition toward efficient, well-regulated, and accessible capital markets.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Law - Civil / Private / Trade / Anti Trust Law / Business Law, grade: A-, University of Auckland, course: Corporate Governance, language: English, abstract: Since the financial crisis in 2008 there is no doubt about the fact that the evolving financial markets are essential for economic growth, employment and prosperity. Those markets serve as financing means for the business world and consumers benefit from the availability of a wide range of financial products and the additional advantages that those markets entail (higher pensions and lower mortgage costs). However, if those financial markets want to continue to contribute both to economy and society, the promotion of a good, integer and transparent functioning of those markets is essential. The proper functioning of the financial markets is largely dependent on the confidence of investors in those markets. The fact that investors ‘must be placed on an equal footing’ is the underlying principle on which this confidence is based. Market participants must be assured to always have access to a minimum set of information before making their investment decisions. In this context, transparency plays an important role. The price of a financial instrument is always the result of the available financial information. And to have proper price formation, it is essential that all the stakeholders have equal access to the relevant information as much as possible. A lot of regulations have already been introduced in this area. Yet, the effectiveness of those regulations can be questioned. For example, directors can make use of certain non-public information to trade in securities. They abuse their superior knowledge and consequently other investors regard this as unfair trading. Due to those unfair practices, other potential investors will turn their back to the financial markets. Insider trading is likely to undermine the investors’ confidence in the market and may jeopardise the proper functioning of the market. Therefore insider trading should be prohibited. But in most cases, law enforcement authorities face difficulties in proving the offenses. Hence, insider trading is a social evil and remains difficult to combat. This research essay will compare the current legislation on insider trading in New Zealand, Australia and the EU.This research essay will compare the current legislation on insider trading in New Zealand, Australia and the EU. In the end, it will be clear that the fundamental differences between the three jurisdictions remain off.

Can the G-20 become a steering committee for the world's economy? Launched at a moment of panic triggered by the financial crisis in late 2008, the leaders' level G-20 is trying to evolve from crisis committee for the world economy to a real steering group facilitating international economic cooperation. What can and should such a "steering committee" focus on? How important could the concrete gains from cooperation be? How much faster could world growth be? Is there sufficient legitimacy in the G-20 process? How does the G-20 relate to the IMF and the World Bank? How can Australia in 2015, and then Turkey in 2016, chair the process so as to encourage strategic leadership? The East Asian Bureau of Economic Research in the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University and the Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution joined forces in putting together this volume and asked opinion leaders and policymakers from G-20 countries to provide their independent perspectives. Contributors include Colin Bradford (Brookings), Peter Drysdale (Australian National University), Kemal Dervis (Brookings), Andrew Elek (Australian National University), Ross Garnaut (University of Melbourne), Huang Yiping (China Center for Economic Research), Bruce Jones (Brookings), Muneesh Kapur (IMF), Homi Kharas (Brookings), Wonhyuk Lim (Korea Development Institute), Rakesh Mohan (IMF), David Nellor (consultant, Indonesia), Yoshio Okubo (Japan Securities Dealers Association), Mari Pangestu (Republic of Indonesia), Changyong Rhee (former Asian Development Bank), Alok Sheel (Government of India), Mahendra Siregar (Republic of Indonesia), Paola Subacchi (Chatham House, London), Carlos Vegh (Brookings), Guillermo Vuletin (Brookings), and Maria Monica Wihardja (World Bank).

Weaknesses in the enforcement of regulation have been targeted by the G-20 as a priority concern for reform. But enforcement efforts in securities markets have proven difficult and uneven. The recent scandal in the United States, wherein a Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Bernard Madoff went undetected by the U.S. authorities for more than two decades, has once again highlighted the importance of effective enforcement of securities regulation, as well as the challenges that securities regulators around the world face in implementing credible enforcement programs. While in many instances it is individuals who bear the losses, we show that noncompliance with securities law can have serious system-wide impact and that the credibility of the system as a whole rests on the existence of effective discipline-the probability of real consequences for failure to obey the law. This paper explores the elements of enforcement, why it is so challenging, why it is important, and whether its effects can be measured. Through an analysis of the data gathered in the World Bank/IMF Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), the paper examines how enforcement is being carried out around the world and draws conclusions regarding how countries are meeting the challenge of effective enforcement.

This paper, aimed at professionals, scholars, and government officials in the field of securities regulations, compares the European (specifically the Market in Financial Instruments Directive MiFID) and U.S. securities regulations. The analysis focuses on the regulatory and supervisory framework, trading venues, and the provision of investment services. We show that although there may be regional differences in the structure and rules of current securities regulation, the objectives and some outcomes of regulation are comparable. Similarly, as the current global financial and economic crisis exposed gaps in securities regulations worldwide, regulators in both regions face similar challenges. This study will be particularly useful for World Bank member countries that are looking at either the European or U.S. regulations when conducting market reforms.
