E-seminar on-demand: SFC’s Enforcement Actions against Listed Corporations

Speaker: Sherman Yan

                Managing Partner and Head of Litigation & Dispute Resolution of ONC Lawyers

Synopsis:

  • Tackling the misconduct by listed companies remains the top priority of the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).  The SFC seeks to address the listed companies’ misconduct and regulatory concerns using its front-loaded, multi-pronged approach, including suspending the trading of a company’s listed securities (before the start of formal investigation). 

  • With the SFC's continuing focus on high impact cases, we anticipate more vigorous enforcement against and penalties on listed companies and their directors in 2020 and beyond.  

  • According to the enforcement statistics of the SFC, the following is the main areas of investigations by the SFC: 

  • corporate disclosure

  • corporate governance and breach of directors’ duties

  • insider dealing

 

In the seminar, the speaker will analyze the latest cases of the SFC to illustrate the principles and discuss about ways to prevent them from occurring.
