Abstract

This article aims to provide an in-depth and updated analysis of insider trading regulation in China, looking at both “law in books” and “law in action.” Since the early 1990s, China has gradually set up a regulatory regime for insider trading in line with international experiences. Twenty years on, how effective has China’s insider trading regulation been? How is it enforced? What are the recent developments and trends? This article critically examines the key elements of insider trading law as well as its theoretical basis in light of recent cases from a comparative perspective. It then conducts an empirical study of China’s insider trading cases to provide insight into public and private enforcement of the law, and based on the findings, makes relevant suggestions to improve the efficacy of insider trading regulation in China.

Keywords: Insider trading, law enforcement, empirical study, comparative perspective, China

JEL Classification: K22, G15
