The National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) informed that it has opened a communication channel for possible infringements that guarantees the protection of the informer and the quality of the information received.
The function of this tool, which is already available on the CNMV website, is to facilitate the reception of communications from people who have information about alleged infringements of rules of order and discipline of securities markets.
This new communication channel has been put in place to meet obligations established in recent European regulations, in particular in Market Abuse Regulation No.596/2014 and its implementing regulations, as well as in MiFID II.
The information received through this channel can help to identify, in particular, possible market abuse infringements (unlawful use of insider information and market manipulation), minimising the harm caused to investors and strengthening transparency and trust in the Spanish markets.
How are communications submitted?
If the informer prefers to reveal his or her identity, he or she must provide his or her name, occupation or position and the source of the information.
These details will lend greater credibility to the communication. To use the channel you can send an email to [email protected] or call 900 373 362.
