FSA Announces Three Plead Guilty to Insider Dealing


On January 10, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) announced a guilty plea by three people accused of insider dealing. Christian Littlewood, a senior investment banker, his wife, Angie Littlewood, and a family friend, Helmy Sa’aid, pleaded guilty to the eight counts of insider dealing alleging that they had made almost £590,000 (approximately $930,000) profit from trades in a number of London Stock Exchange and Alternative Investment Market listed shares between 2000 and 2008.

Mr. Littlewood worked at Dresdner Kleinwort until 2007 and at Shore Capital from 2008 to 2009. His wife was a qualified barrister who had also worked as an investment banker. Mr. Sa’aid, a Singaporean national, was returned to the UK in March 2010 after being extradited from Mayotte, one of the Comoros Islands in the Indian Ocean.
