WASHINGTON (CN) - The SEC charged the vice chairman of ISE Holdings and two of his business partners with inside trading in advance of the April 30, 2007 announcement of Eurex Frankfurt's $2.8 billion merger with International Securities Exchange Holdings.

ISE vice chairman John Marshall, Alan L. Tucker and Mark R. Larson were all partners in Marshall Tucker & Associates, a New York financial consultancy.
