|Title:||Australian Insiders' Views on Insider Trading||Contributor(s):||Freeman, Mark A (author); Adams, Michael A (author)||Publication Date:||1999||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/27513||Abstract:||There is a serious lack of Australian empirical literature on the effectiveness of insider trading regulations. This is due to the relative lack of relevant trading data compared to counterpart regimes (for example, the United States). Until recently, Australian corporate insiders were not required to disclose their interests in their company to the ASX. In an attempt to fill the literature gap, this article adopts the empirical approach of surveying a large sample of senior corporate insiders regarding their trading motives and attitudes in order to gauge the likely information content of their trades. A significant proportion of respondents indicated a propensity to time their trades based on inside information. The results have major implications for regulatory reform regarding insider trading and disclosure laws.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Corporate Law, v.10, p. 1-12||Publisher:||LexisNexis Butterworths||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1037-4124||Field of Research (FOR):||180109 Corporations and Associations Law||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||940407 Legislation, Civil and Criminal Codes||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal|
