Market Maker FAQ v1.0
What have the Chinese got to do with all this?
What are Chinese walls?
Most Market Makers are part of huge financial organisations, and these
are made up fund managers, investment advisors, brokers and much more besides.
In order to stop these people from exchanging information with each other
(which would lead to breaches of client confidentiality, insider trading and
much more besides) artificial and procedural rules are drawn up dictating what
can be said and when. These rules
are know as Chinese Walls.
