Essential reading for anybody in the financial sector
"The all too recent scandals and upheavals in the financial services sector -- like LIPBOR and PPI -- and others too numerous to mention here -- have had a profound effect on the economy too complicated to mention here either. Suffice to say, changes had to be made, of which all financial and legal practitioners should be aware. So thank you to Jordan Publishing for bringing out, as one of their most recent titles, `Modern Financial Regulation.'
This timely first edition comprehensively covers and explains the changes in the regulation of financial services brought about by the Financial Services Act 2012. The best known is of course, the replacement of the Financial Services Authority (FSA) by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority, a development which seems to have resulted in a more robust regime of regulatory, civil injunctive and criminal enforcement.
`The Financial Services Act,' say the authors, `ushers in fundamental structural change, a modern era in financial regulation.' It replaces, one hopes, the former and obviously ineffectual `light touch regulation' with `greater intervention, enforcement and sanction for the banking and financial services sector.
The book is actually a collective work which brings together the insights of a number of expert contributors and authors, with the intention of providing a precise guide to the structural and regulatory changes that have taken place and the institutions that have been recently created.
... If you are involved in any way with the financial services sector -- and most people in the City of London are -- you will definitely need a copy of this important new title. The law is stated as at 26 February 2013."
