Insider Trading Compliance Training

You have heard of insider trading. You have read the news. But what is insider trading, really? Would you recognize it if you saw it? The Xcelus online learning course for Insider Trading will make certain that everyone in your organization is crystal clear on:

  • The SEC definition of insider trading
  • The definition of “material, non-public” information
  • Confidentiality policies vs. insider trading
  • Open-trading windows
  • Short selling
  • Legal ramifications and corporate discipline

Directors of companies and major owners of stock are not the only people who have the potential to be convicted of insider trading. Employees at all levels are at risk of committing Insider Trading. While insider trading’s legalities can be fuzzy, corporate policy is always clear: If you share material, non-public information with the public- the kind of information that could influence an investor’s decision to buy or sell a security-then you have committed insider trading.

The course is under 15 minutes and available in SCORM  or video formats for your LMS.  The course can also be customized to your organization using scenarios your employees would be familiar with.
