Directors’ Dealings and Insider Trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange

Private purchases and sales by management of shares they own in the company they manage

Directors’ dealings cover securities transactions by people with management duties at publicly traded companies. Since 1 July 2002, such transactions are subject to new notification rules. Per section 15a of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG), people at publicly traded companies who have leadership duties, or people who have close relationships with these managers, must declare any securities transactions made with their own contingent of company shares.

Through the Fourth Financial Markets Promotion Act (FiMaFöG), the reporting requirement for so-called directors’ dealings was expanded to apply to all companies admitted for trading on the Regulated Market. This requirement used to apply only to companies on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s technology segment, Neuer Markt.

The goals of the new regulation covering directors’ dealings is to provide better investor protection, make the financial markets more transparent and to create more trust. In conjunction with the new rules for ad-hoc announcements, private investors are now offered a basis for damages claims in the case of missing or late publication of facts influencing the price development of a share.

Investors can review directors’ dealings online:

Database of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Agency (BaFin)

*FSE Listings: Note of warning, we have no affiliation to a group misrepresenting the FSE Listings brand called Julius Csurgo, Global Regency, Merger Law Associates, Frankfurt Listings, and other such names. As far as our research has revealed, they appear to charge more and allegedly are slower than our firm at listing, in addition, we are not even sure they can list firms. Several firms have complained they were listed and didn’t even get to trade or clear properly using listings services and contacted us believing us to be the same firm. We believe that in this matter, one should be careful of all firms who do not have the representative Mark Bragg contact you. Our firm listed several companies in April and expects to do this again in May, with over 100 listed to date as a consortium. We are the leaders, competition is only healthy if they are not misrepresenting a brand, therefore, we bring this to your immediate attention that we have no affiliation to these firms. We are the only FSE Listings Inc, contact Mark Bragg today.
