Insider dealing has been unlawful in the UK since 1980 and market abuse, of which insider dealing is just one form, since 2000. It is from this time when the Financial Services Authority (FSA) was established and the creation of these as civil offences that they could be pursued rigorously. It is the purpose of this article to examine the FSA's record of enforcement relative to (i) its estimated level of occurrence and (ii) the US experience.
