Modern Financial Regulation is a practical guide to the Financial Services Act 2012. This new legislation will bring about major structural and regulatory changes to financial services, including:-

  • abolition of the Financial Services Authority which is to be replaced with the Financial Conduct Authority
  • introduction of light touch regulation to be replaced by far more robust regime of regulatory, civil injunctive and criminal enforcement;
  • a new consumer focussed investigative and prosecution authority that will regulate consumer markets
  • a focus on ‘principles based’ enforcement, which mirrors the approach to consumer law of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations
The Financial Services Act 2012 amends and consolidates various statutory provisions, and dovetails with several discrete areas of financial regulation including money laundering, insider trading and cartel offences. This new guide explains how all these various strands interlock and how the new approaches are likely to work in practice.

Modern Financial Regulation is essential reading for anyone who requires an understanding of the legal framework underpinning the financial services sector.
