Japan Authorities Arrest Head of Equity & 3 Team Members from SMBC Nikko Securities for Stock Market Manipulation

5th March 2022 | Hong Kong

Japan authorities in Tokyo had arrested the Head of Equity & 3 equity team members from SMBC Nikko Securities for stock market manipulation.  The 4 employees including the Managing Director & Head of Equity Trevor Hill, Deputy Chief Equity Alexandre Avakiants, Makoto Yamada and Shinichiro Okazaki, are suspected to have been involved in “block offerings” by placing orders in after-trading hours to support decline in prices of 5 listed companies between 2019 to 2020.  The Tokyo Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission had searched the Tokyo headquarters of SMBC Nikko in 2021 for alleged violation of the financial instruments and exchange law.  Offenders are subject to a prison term of up to 10 years or a fine of ¥10 million (USD 87,000) or less or both. Offending companies will be slapped with a fine of up to ¥700 million (USD 6 million).  SMBC Nikko Securities (brokerage business) is a subsidiary of Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Group, the 2nd largest banking group in Japan and one of the top 3 megabanks in Japan alongside MUFJ Financial Group and Mizuho Financial Group.
