This book analyzes and compares the laws of selected industrial countries that are representative of the different approaches to the treatment of banks in distress. It addresses only those banking and economic policy issues that are required for a proper understanding of the banking law or the legal strategies, procedures, and practices that have evolved in the treatment of banking problems. 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.

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.

The Principles of Islamic Banking

This book is about the principles of Islamic banking. It explains the prohibition of Riba, and how the prohibition of usury was common to all monotheist religions. The use of Islamic laws in banking can bring together investors and managers; and also to explain mudarabah which is an arrangement where an investor entrusts his capital or merchandise to an agent. The book explains the belief of economic progress; that development does not imply Westernization. The encouragement of private sector activity is not, however, accompanied by any deliberate policy of fostering competition. The authority in an Islamic state is an interest that extends not only to criminal law, but also to the commercial law which affects both local and foreign companies. Although the law is usually applied consistently within individual countries, there is less consistency among Islamic states. The Koran and the sunnah, of course, provide the basis of the law in all Islamic states, but interpretation varies considerably. It finally explains the greatest challenge to the world of Islamic commerce in the 20thcentury is, to transform the classical mudarabah into an equally smooth functioning and efficient modern Islamic bank with the potential of almost unlimited growth.

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. Dies wirkt sich grundlegend auf die Produktgestaltung und den Vertrieb der Institute im Besonderen sowie auf die Marktstruktur im Allgemeinen aus. Damit ergeben sich auch Folgen für die geschäftspolitische Positionierung der einzelnen Marktteilnehmer. Das Buch beschreibt die rechtlichen Grundlagen der MiFID II sowohl auf europäischer als auch auf nationaler Ebene. 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.

The European Union is moving towards the full implementation of the Investment Services Directive (ISD). Indeed, in some Member States, further changes to the domestic legal framework to increase competition among financial institutions and markets will complete or complement its implementation. This book includes updated papers written by academics and practitioners from Europe and the United States and presented at the Genoa Seminar on European Investment Markets, held in November 1996. Several papers examine critical aspects of the ISD from a comparative viewpoint, in particular considering the appropriateness of further harmonisation. The regulation of financial exchanges in the new competitive arena and the need for cooperation between supervisors receive special attention. Its evaluation of the economic impact of ISD implementation and consideration of further perspectives makes European Securities Markets one of the first and most comprehensive publications on the ISD implementation. The volume will interest and educate all those involved in European securities and derivatives markets in either a legal or economic capacity, including banking and financial lawyers, financial economists, regulators, exchanges and intermediaries.

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.
