Insider Trading from the Perspective of the FBI
One to two percent of employees at hedge funds can be expected to behave wrongly. For those that willingly and knowingly cross the line, the government may deploy an investigation. Mr. Chaves will share with us information about the FBI’s sprawling investigation into insider trading in the hedge fund industry (over 100 arrests so far). He will discuss compliance matters such as “tone at the top”, firm culture, whistleblowers and escalation policy.
Those of us in the financial services industry will learn about best practices and “do’s and don’ts”. We will review the psychology of the inside trader. And finally Mr. Chaves will share with us some case studies including trading at Galleon, SAC Capital and others.
