Two people were arrested in London today as part of an FSA insider dealing investigation.
A 37-year-old male City professional and a 28-year-old woman were arrested after search warrants were executed at two addresses in London. A further arrest has been made in Germany.
The operation was jointly carried out by the FSA and City of London Police Economic Crime Directorate, while the regulator also worked with the police and prosecution authority in Hessen, Germany.
The FSA has confirmed the arrests are not linked to any other ongoing insider dealing investigations.
Since March 2009, six individuals have received prison sentences in relation to insider dealing following FSA prosecutions.
Another 11 individuals are currently being prosecuted by the FSA, with all the trials commencing between this month and May next year.
