Insider trading is prohibited
It is prohibited to use price-sensitive information that is not publicly available. You are therefore not allowed to perform transactions using insider knowledge.
The brochure 'Insider trading' provides more information on the regulations that apply to insider trading.
Investment firms are obliged to notify suspicious transactions
Do you, as an investment firm, suspect that someone is trading on the basis of insider knowledge or is attempting to do so? Or do you suspect that someone is manipulating the market or is attempting to do so? You must then notify the AFM about this without delay.
How should you notify suspicious transactions?
You can notify suspicious transactions via Portal AFM. You log in to the portal using the details you have received from the AFM. You can subsequently download an electronic form. You can also notify the AFM by email: email@example.com.
The Obligation to Notify brochure states when, how and in what cases you are obliged to notify the AFM of suspicious transactions.
