Formatted abstract The Ivan Boesky scandal in the United States of America has re-awakened interest in the practice and regulation of insider trading.

This thesis consequently seeks to review the nature and effects of insider trading and the appropriateness of existing regulatory legislation.

Particular attention is paid to the costs and benefits both of insider trading itself and its regulation in Australia.

It is found that despite recent suggestions for regulatory reform, the current regime of regulation is justified on an objective assessment of the costs and benefits of insider trading.
