I think that I noticed some unusual activity involving a security. What should I do?
Use the ISA's Hotline to contact the ISA.
I have been summoned to appear immediately at ISA offices for interrogation. Is my appearance mandatory?
Yes. ISA investigators have the legal authority to call any person in for interrogation. If you fail to appear for an interrogation or an administrative inquiry, you may be guilty of a criminal offense (such as obstruction of justice, contempt of court, frustration of administrative proceedings).
I entered a purchase order for securities and instead of cancelling it I entered an offsetting sales order. As a result, a matching order was created. Did I break the law?
If a trade does not represent a true meeting between a willing buyer and a willing seller, the trade may be considered a securities violation.
Do I have to report my bank accounts to anyone?
According to ISA circulars, statutory reporting obligations apply to mutual funds, ETF management companies, and investment portfolio managers. Moreover, according to Ministry of Finance circulars, issued by the Ministry of Finance, other supervised entities such as banks, insurance companies, and provident funds, are obligated to report their bank accounts.
Is information on an anticipated interest cut considered "inside information"?
Information about an upcoming interest rate cut affects the economy as a whole, and therefore does not meet the definition of inside information.
