How much are you looking to invest in this hypothetical venture and what return do you think you will get? Even 5k at 10% is only $500 - is that worth risking CPA license, job, jail time, fines, etc.? If you’re that desperate just sell your Xbox or something

I’m not sure how that be be okay in any scenario....

You’re likely ok from a firm independence perspective (assuming the other entity is not restricted), but sure seems like insider trading (i.e., using material non public information).

like

Check with the compliance program and see if it’s restricted...

Are you trading based on information about your client (their competitor) that is not yet publicly disclosed?

Can’t you just say based on your client 10k and reading about the economy on wsj and other publication that you come to the conclusion that the competitor will fare much better? Then that’s not insider info

It makes a lot is sense to use your industry knowledge for your personal investing choices. Avoid independence and avoid insider trading

I got hired to be the SME on a particular tech platform at my current company. I have more experience on it than my boss does, yet during a code review, he insisted that I delete a section of code that was perfectly functional and shippable and swap in his preferred code. Two hours later, he figured out that the reason why there were more than a few compiler errors in the code was because my code actually worked… smh.
