The EU Market Abuse Regulation prohibits insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation. It has significant extraterritorial effect, and applies to instruments listed or traded on a variety of EU venues. The regime under the EU Market Abuse Regulation has been maintained in the UK post-Brexit, but applies to instruments listed or traded in the EU even if they are not listed or traded in the UK, which maintains the pre-Brexit scope, and so captures market abuse across both UK and EU markets.
