The president recently approved in full a bill passed by Congress that will substantially change the existing punitive rules for crimes and misconduct carried out within the capital and financial markets. The new law introduces some relevant changes to the rules through which the Central Bank and the Securities Commission may punish offences and to the definitions and scope of application of certain financial crimes and wrongdoings, such as insider trading and market manipulation.
