Canada’s first and still only criminal conviction for insider trading ended in tragedy before becoming the subject of the educational-documentary film "Collared" (https://collareddocumentary.com/).
Spanning a fifteen year period in the United States and Canada, Joseph Grmovsek and his co-accused illegally purchased and sold stock with inside information in over a hundred separate deals, churning tens of million of dollars for an eventual eight-figure US dollar gain in what is believed to be the most prolonged insider trading case ever uncovered by American and Canadian securities investigators. After being identified, Joseph cooperated with authorities to absolve many innocent professionals inadvertently swept up in his criminal endeavor, admitted guilt and began his 39-month prison sentence that included stays in two notorious maximum security prisons. His partner-in-crime and best friend, however, never made it to sentencing, tragically jumping off a bridge to his death a day before he was scheduled to fly with Joseph to New York to learn his fate.
Joseph's dramatic story forms the basis of the documentary film "Collared" and since his release from prison his talks, in person or by Skype, offer an unparalleled look into the world of white-collar crime, the consequences for those participating in it and affected by it, as well as corporate and professional ethics and information protection. His insights are important for those interested in insider trading identification and its prosecution and defense, the protection of corporate secrets, the consequences and reputation damage related to breach, compliance, and "scared straight" ethics training. His audiences primarily includes investment funds and portfolio managers, law schools and law firms, regulatory and professional bodies, and corporations and their staff.
