Tom Hardin is the CEO of Tipper X Advisors, LLC and previously spent much of his career as an investment analyst focused on equities in the technology sector, most recently as a junior partner in a long/short hedge fund seeded by a well-known billionaire investor. In 2008, as part of a cooperation agreement with the Department of Justice, Tom assisted the U.S. government in understanding how insider trading occurred in the hedge fund industry. Known as “Tipper X,” Tom became one of the most prolific informants in securities fraud history, helping to build several of the 80+ individual criminal cases in “Operation Perfect Hedge,” a Wall Street house cleaning campaign that morphed into the largest insider trading investigation of a generation.

Since resolving his case in 2015, Tom consults and speaks on insider trading, ethics and compliance issues from his former analyst seat perspective to investment firms, corporations, business and law schools. As a complement to existing legal and regulatory compliance efforts, Tom discusses the poor rationalizations which led to him crossing the line, his double life as a government informant, his multi-year journey through the criminal justice system and his view on current high-risk areas for potential insider trading to occur. Tom holds a B.S. in Economics with a Finance concentration from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and is the subject of an upcoming CNBC documentary.
