FSA Issues Final Notices to an Investment Banker and His Wife for Insider Dealing

On 31 May 2012, the FSA issued Christian Littlewood and his wife, Angie, with final notices prohibiting them from performing any function in relation to any regulated activity. Between 1998 and 2008, Mr. Littlewood was employed by the investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein Ltd. As a result of his employment he had access to inside information relating to securities. Mr. and Mrs. Littlewood used the inside information obtained through his employment to facilitate the placing of trades in eight separate stocks just prior to announcements to the market. As a result of these trades, Mr. and Mrs. Littlewood, together with a third party friend of Mrs. Littlewood (Mr. Sa’aid), made profits of around £590,000.

The FSA’s action follows the conviction of Mr. and Mrs. Littlewood for criminal offences of insider dealing in February 2011. Final Notice for Christian Littlewood. Final Notice for Angie Littlewood.
