Seminar: Director Liability for Handling of Price Sensitive Information
The SFC's prioritization of enforcement action against listed companies and their directors for malfeasance has come into sharp focus, with announcements in respect of major cases against companies and their senior management concerning no less than 13 different issuers in the past year alone. Much of the regulatory attention has been concentrated in the area of how listed companies and their executives handle price sensitive information.
Join us for this lunch time seminar as a distinguished panel of speakers discusses the law governing the handling of price sensitive information and how directors can manage such information to comply with regulatory requirements.
This seminar is intended for senior business executives, in-house lawyers and compliance professionals at listed companies.
This seminar includes a buffet style lunch with choice of hot entrees.
