AIMA Hong Kong Breakfast Seminar - The Inside Story of Tipper X
AIMA Hong Kong, together with ACA Compliance Group, invites you to join us at our upcoming breakfast seminar.
In this session, you will get the opportunity to hear from the secret witness at the center of the largest insider trading case in securities fraud history. Tom has shared his cautionary tale with over 90 hedge funds the past two years and will go through his career leading up to his crimes, how he rationalized his illegal decisions, his double life as an FBI informant and current risk areas for insider trading to occur today within hedge funds.
Tom Hardin (http://www.TipperX.com) previously spent much of his career as a long-short hedge fund analyst focused on equities in the technology sector. In 2008, as part of a cooperation agreement with the Department of Justice, Hardin assisted the U.S. government in understanding how insider trading occurred in the hedge fund industry. Known as "Tipper X," Hardin became one of the most prolific informants in securities fraud history, helping to build several of the 80+ individual criminal cases in "Operation Perfect Hedge," a Wall Street house cleaning campaign that morphed into the largest insider trading investigation of a generation. Since resolving his case in 2015, Hardin consults and speaks on fraud, ethics, conduct risk and compliance issues from his former front-line perspective to investment firms, law firms, banks and corporations, as a complement to existing regulatory and compliance efforts. Hardin holds a B.S. in Economics with a Finance concentration from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
