Appraises for the Author and Previous Edition
Sandeep Parekh is as keen a student as he is a teacher, of the Law – and in the Law of Securities he is most proficient. To those to take pleasure in “the fall of the great and the greatly fraudulent” (as the Economist John Galbraith used to say) this book is instructive as well as entertaining – and particularly useful to those who teach, learn, and practice the LAW.
Fali S. Nariman, Jurist and Senior Advocate to the Supreme Court of India
Those looking for answers may do well to read Sandeep Parekh’s book titled Fraud, Manipulation and Insider Trading in the Indian Securities Market…for students of finance, would-be securities market lawyers, and other participants in the market will do well to invest time to read the book. Financial planners will find it useful as well, specially the chapter on ‘Mis-selling and Unsuitability’. Heavy reading the book may be, but persist and get rewarded with gems such as: “..the purpose of modern securities regulations is not to remove stupidity from the capital markets – only ignorance.” You chance upon another one while reading about how market upticks and bubbles are fertile grounds for fraud: “the beta of the market hides the negative alpha of frauds.
Though the book is about the securities market and the regulations to prevent fraud and manipulation are about stocks, the book is relevant for those preparing for the future of Indian finance according to the road map laid down by the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC).

There cannot be a more appropriate time for the book Fraud, Manipulation and Insider Trading in the Indian Securities Markets by Sandeep Parekh than now, at this time of revelations of corporate scandals and judicial actions, regulatory review of the Insider Trading Regulations and the coming into force of the Companies Act 2013, which brings forth onerous responsibilities on the board of directors.
With his vast experience in corporate law and regulatory affairs, Parekh is the right person to dwell on the complex subject of insider trading. This book will strike a chord with practitioners and learners alike. It starts earnestly giving a lucid explanation of ‘fraud’ in common law and statutes and goes on to dwell on Sebi’s regulations, quoting the relevant authorities. One of the interesting things about the book is the extent of research material on corporate fraud jurisprudence that has been quoted.
PR Ramesh, advocate reviewed the book in the magazine Outlook Business, 12 Apr 2014
The book “Fraud, Manipulation and Insider Trading in the Indian Securities Markets” provides a unique contribution as it fills an important gap in the literature in securities regulation in India that is gaining prominence. Its coverage as well as contextual analysis would be of immense benefit to practitioners, academics and students alike.
Prof. Umakanth, National University of Singapore.
Sandeep Parekh’s book on fraud, manipulation and insider trading is unique not only because it is the only book on the subject, but also because it explains the concepts on first principles in a logical manner. It also analyses the law both as a critic as also the law as it stands. The book presents a balanced view on the complex subjects it seeks to tackle and is an easy read for lawyers and non lawyers alike
