Swiss regtech company Indigita SA, in collaboration with BRP Bizzozero & Partners SA, has launched a new e-Learning course on Market Abuse in the European context to provide an overview of its definitions and concepts as well as to clarify the concepts outlined by EU regulation 596/2014 on market abuse and by EU Directive 2014/57/EC on criminal sanctions for Market Abuse.
The course begins with an introduction to the legal framework covering market abuse in Europe and moves on to describe its three different types of abusive behaviours, such as insider dealing (art. 8 MAR), unlawful disclosure of inside information (art. 10 MAR), and market manipulation (art. 12 & 15 MAR).
The training continues with an overview of the sanctions outlined by the Market Abuse Directive (MAD) and focuses on the main obligations to prevent Market Abuse under European legislation, including issuer disclosure requirements (art. 17 MAR), establishing / maintaining effective prevention and detection arrangements, systems, and procedures (art. 16 MAR), filing suspicious transaction and order reports (art. 16 MAR), as well as notification of managers’ transactions and drawing up of insider lists (art. 18 & 19 MAR).
The online course takes participants step by step through the different chapters and combines theory with interactive elements, case studies and scenario-based exercises. The training does not require prior knowledge of the topic, lasts approximately 45 minutes, and concludes with a final assessment to check the participants’ learning progress.
The new Market Abuse Europe course complements the previous Market Abuse online course, and it is intended for any person or company trading with financial instruments.
The course is available in English.
