This comprehensive book begins with a consideration of the nature of the general banker-customer relationship, the obligations it poses and the issues relating to the commencement of the banking relationship. It provides individuals and companies with valuable guidance when assessing the risks in their relationship with banks, and vice versa. The following chapters allow all parties to consider carefully the central issues and underlying general principles that might arise by addressing the various activities undertaken by a lender. The duty of confidentiality, lenders as fiduciaries, the lender's duty to advise borrowers on the imprudence of transactions as well as fraud, and banks as constructive trustees and damages for breach of contract by a lender are all considered. The final chapters explore the duties of security holders and mortgagees of land, the liability of lenders for receivers they appoint, environmental liability and lender liability as shadow directors concerning wrongful trading. The book outlines liability in negligence and contract, with specific reference to existing case law concerning banks in this field from an English law perspective, and also Scottish and Commonwealth law, thus providing valuable applicability to the banking context for practitioners in other fields.

The financial crisis of 2007-9 revealed serious failings in the regulation of financial institutions and markets, and prompted a fundamental reconsideration of the design of financial regulation. As the financial system has become ever-more complex and interconnected, the pace of evolution continues to accelerate. It is now clear that regulation must focus on the financial system as a whole, but this poses significant challenges for regulators. Principles of Financial Regulation describes how to address those challenges. Examining the subject from a holistic and multidisciplinary perspective, Principles of Financial Regulation considers the underlying policies and the objectives of regulation by drawing on economics, finance, and law methodologies. The volume examines regulation in a purposive and dynamic way by framing the book in terms of what the financial system does, rather than what financial regulation is. By analysing specific regulatory measures, the book provides readers to the opportunity to assess regulatory choices on specific policy issues and encourages critical reflection on the design of regulation.

The book does not cover international aspects of bank insolvency, but rather has a domestic focus, given that bank regulation and supervision are still largely a national endeavor.

Internet Banking and the Law in Europe

Regulation, Financial Integration and Electronic Commerce

Author: Apostolos Ath. Gkoutzinis

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139458671

Category: Law

Page: N.A

The European Union has long sought to create a single financial area across Europe where consumers in one country benefit from financial markets and activities in other countries. With the emergence of the Internet as a platform for the provision of online banking services, the creation of a pan-European market for banking services appeared a realistic proposition. In practice, however, this has not happened. This book asks why and argues that the creation of banking markets via the Internet relies on both available technologies and appropriate laws and regulations. The institutional and legal framework for online banking services in the single European market are examined, as is the level of legal harmonization achieved in the UK, France and Germany under the influence of the EU Directives pertaining to online banking activities.

Die europäischen Regelungen der MiFID II sowie der MiFIR und der EMIR stellen die Finanzindustrie vor große Herausforderungen. Mit diesen neuen Normen sollen die Transparenz in den Märkten sowie die Effizienz und Integrität der Finanzmärkte erhöht und neue, auch technische Entwicklungen, erfasst werden.

Darauf aufbauend werden die Auswirkungen der Richtlinie auf den Wertpapierhandel und auf Handelsplätze sowie auf die Anlageberatung und für den Anlegerschutz aus Sicht der Institute thematisiert. Zudem werden die Folgen der MiFID II im Zusammenhang mit der Product Governance auf die Kunden- und Produktstruktur analysiert sowie die Wertpapier-Compliance für die Marktteilnehmer beschrieben. Die Autoren stammen aus Finanzinstituten, aus Rechtsanwaltskanzleien sowie der Aufsicht. Sie beschreiben sowohl den Stand der Umsetzung als auch weiterführende Perspektiven für die praktische Implementierung der MiFID II. Das Buch bietet damit einen lösungsorientierten Ein- und Überblick über zentrale Themen sowie einen Ausblick auf die weitere Entwicklung.

International Banking Law

Page: 464

This is the first major casebook devoted to international banking law. It examines cutting edge legal and regulatory developments in international banking law, as focused through the business and structural means by which banks conduct international activities--the business of international banking. In doing so, the book highlights the fact that, as international banking has grown and increasingly plays a key role in the international economy, so have practical and policy concerns arisen that have caused an increasing need and support for international banking laws and regulation. The book presents the practical aspects of legal issues that arise in the most common international banking transactions, including the legal role of international banks in letters of credit transactions, international loan syndications and international deposit transactions--so called "ringfencing" of deposits. In so doing, the book seeks to engage the student to understand the respective roles, responsibilities and liabilities of banks associated with these transactions, and the related regulatory concerns reflected in banking laws, regulations and policies. This book also explores international banking regulation, including an analysis of the international principles of bank supervision and the evolving work and influence of the Basel Committee on Bank Regulation and Supervision and regulation of U.S. banks in foreign markets. Significantly, it examines critical international banking legal issues and policies in the context of the recent global financial crisis, government "bailouts" and global financial regulatory reform initiatives responding to the crisis, the causes of the global financial crisis, government reactions and perceived weaknesses in the international financial regulatory system, and regulatory reform covering the Dodd-Frank Act, G-10 and Basel Committee reform initiatives. The book also examines the regulation of foreign banking organizations in the U.S. under the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation K and International Banking Act, Foreign Bank Supervision and Enhancement Act and related laws and regulations. Also, the book analyzes current legal and regulatory developments in anti-terrorism, money laundering, and embargo laws as relates to international banking operations. Finally, the book covers the "single rulebook" banking regulation of the European Monetary Union--the first transnational regulation of international banking. The book also presents emerging ethical considerations in international banking law practice, and the implications of relevant ethical guidance by the American Bar Association and the International Bar Association.
