At EU level, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued a Consultation Paper on a number of key areas including extending the scope of MAR to spot FX contracts, as well as examining the current definition of “inside information” and the relationship between MAR and market soundings. Their Report is expected in Spring 2020.

Whatever the outcome at an EU level, and whatever the UK’s future relationship with the EU may be, one thing is clear: the FCA will leave no stone unturned in investigating any potential market misconduct or manipulation.

• Aligning market abuse surveillance and controls with AML/financial crime surveillance and controls
• The relationship between MAR and legitimate market sounding
• Suspicious activity and transaction reporting from the buy-side and sell-side
• Issuers’ obligations on inside information controls
• Market conduct risk of cryptoassets
