Matthew Goldstein and Svea Herbst-Bayliss at Reuters dug into Moore Cap’s past with insider trading and found this, another “trader gone rogue,” the same term that might soon be officially coined for Julian Rifat, now that (it appears anyway) Moore Cap is saying that none of Rifat’s insider info-driven trades were done with company money.
There was another rogue trader back in 2008:
In September 2008, Steven Harrison, a former top Moore Capital trader in London, paid a $78,000 fine to settle a “market abuse” investigation by British regulators. The Financial Services Authority found Harrison had received inside information before telling another trader to buy some corporate bonds.
