Former investment banker Oliver Curtis could be jailed for up to five years after being convicted of conspiracy to commit insider trading. The Australian Securities & Investments Commission had alleged that he profited by using market-sensitive information to trade contracts for difference in 2007 and 2008. Curtis had used inside information supplied by co-conspirator John Hartman, an equities dealer at Orion Asset Management. Hartman has served a 15-month jail term, and received a reduced sentence for providing evidence against Curtis.
