The Many Aspects of Market IntegrityEdited by Juliette Overland
Market integrity is essential for the proper and efficient functioning of securities markets – it enables investors to transact in a fair and informed manner, with certainty that prices of securities reflect available information.
The absence of market integrity is a significant threat to securities markets, with the potential to greatly reduce investor confidence and, as a result, participation.
In recent times, legislators, regulators, law reform bodies and market participants have focused on the impact on market integrity of a number of key practices – most significantly, the relationship between market integrity and directors' margin loans,m securities trading during black-out periods, rumour-mongering and private analysts' briefings have been the subject of debate and review.
This book brings together a number of experts to explore a variety of topics relating to market integrity relevant to the present debate – including rumour-mongering, regulatory mechanisms, remedies for investors, insider trading, short selling and continuous disclosure.
