2. The facts of violation of the Securities Investment Trust and Consulting Act by XX Huang (hereinafter referred to as Huang) are as follows:
(1) Huang was the manager of Capital High Tech Fund from April 1, 2018 to August 19, 2019. He used the company''s wireless network and other accounts to buy the same stocks as those of the fund he managed for his father, himself and his relatives and friends through the accounts of his friends XX Lin, XX Liang and XX Huang, and bought the stocks before Capital XX Fund, and then engaged in same-day or following-day wash sale after Capital XX Fund bought the stocks on the same day or sold the stocks on the next day to earn the price difference. 
It is obvious that he used the information obtained from his position to engage in the trading of securities and the trading of the same securities held by the fund under its management, and failed to make a declaration to the company to which it belongs. Huang acknowledged in writing on September 11, 2019 that the account of XX Liang was used by Huang for his own trading, and the accounts of XX Lin and XX Huang were used to trade securities on behalf of his father and relatives and friends. It was verified that these acts have violated the provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 77 of the Act, and sub-paragraph 1, paragraph 2 of Article 13 and paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 14 of the Regulations Governing SITE Personnel.
(2) Capital Investment Trust did not effectively manage its network security, thus enabling XX Huang to use the company’s wireless network during work to trade stocks for the interests of himself or others. In addition, during his tenure as a fund manager, Huang used the securities accounts of others to trade the same stocks as those of the funds under his management; the transaction amount was huge but was not declared according to the regulation, and Capital Investment Trust failed to fulfill its responsibility of supervision; it was verified that it was the missing of Capital Investment Trust. 
3. In light of the above-mentioned facts, the law violation by Capital Investment Trust and its former employee Huang has affected the normal execution of the securities investment trust business. Therefore, the disciplinary action as in the Subject is imposed in accordance with paragraph 1 of Article 103, Article 104 and paragraph 7 of Article 111 of the Act.
