DMA kept busy

31 May 2006 Angelo Coppola

There are 17 cases of possible insider trading which are in various stages of completion at the Directorate of Market Abuse (DMA). These investigations are not into the affairs of the companies listed but into trading in shares on the stock exchange.

Cases that have been closed include dealings in Glenrand MIB in August 2005; Gubb and Inggs Limited in May 2002; the Liberty Group Limited between June and July 2005; MICC Property Income Fund Limited between November and December 2005.

Investigations are "closed" once it becomes evident that no, or insufficient evidence has been obtained to warrant action in terms of the Act

In terms of possible market manipulation the DMA reports that a case concerning Stratcorp Limited has been referred for legal action. The activities took place in January this year.

Added to which there were two other cases of possible market manipulation being investigated and they concern ACC-ROSS and New Rand Warrants.

Two cases of possible false reporting are under investigation, of which one has been referred for criminal investigation.

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
