PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This title provides a unique guide for professionals concerned with investor protection. It provides a clear, coherent picture of how the law - both civil and criminal - approaches investor protection. It incorporates the changes brought in by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, along with other recent changes in the financial services regulatory regime.
The authors explore the issues of consumer protection and the reduction of financial crime, areas that have been singled out as objectives of the regulatory systems. The work includes:
* New sections on whistleblowing, direct selling, international co-operation in investor protection cases
* A revised section on money laundering in light of the EC Amending Directive
* Updated sections on company directors, confiscation of criminal assets, and pre-emptive remedies
