Treasury and financial regulator complete a review of the criminal market abuse regime
The review is part of the commitments set out in the Economic Crime Plan
The UK Treasury and the Financial Conduct Authority announced on 24 March the completion of their joint review into the criminal market abuse regime. The accompanying policy paper explains that the review has identified a number of areas where the government deems it appropriate to update the regime. The government will now consider the proposed changes to the criminal regime alongside possible reforms to the Market Abuse Regulation stemming from the wider Future Regulatory Framework Review.
