This book examines the efficacy of the legal, regulatory, and institutional framework for combating financial crime. Advancing original and constructive thoughts, the book brings out important linkages between different kinds of financial crime and money laundering. The comparative treatment of legal aspects of financial crime strongly sets this book apart from other works on the topic. Many institutions and individuals concerned with the fight against financial crime, such as financial intelligence units, financial investigative units, criminal investigative agencies, anti-money laundering training, and research bodies, policy makers, central banks and banking supervisors, securities regulators and securities firms, insurance companies and pension funds, regulators of insurance and pension businesses, corporate lawyers and financial services lawyers, legal scholars in financial crime, financial economists, academics, universities, multilateral development banks and other international organizations, including the Financial Action Task Force, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Bank for International Settlements, will find this book a valuable intellectual contribution to the fight against financial crime. Chapters in the book are developed around the concept of anti-money laundering while maintaining a focused analysis of other financial crimes as well.

Legal Administration of Financial Services in Common Law Jurisdictions
2006 0-7734-5933-2
There is a dearth of literature for lawyers and law reform institutions on how to structure, or what to consider when setting up, a unified financial services regulator. While economists have been quick to put pen to paper on collateral and substantive issues relating to unified financial services supervision, not much has been written by legal scholars. This book fills that gap. The book provides fresh and original contributions to the debate on unified financial services supervision, highlighting different models of unified regulators in several countries, and that different types of financial services and products continue to spring up in the financial sector of many countries is indicative of the changing landscape of the financial services industry globally. Equally important, as indicators of the evolving trajectory of financial services regulation, are increases in the number of countries where universal banking is practiced and in numbers of parent and subsidiary companies providing different types of financial services and products. This book is written against that background. The book examines the efficacy of the legal, institutional, and regulatory framework for financial services supervision. In particular, frameworks governing institutions and structures responsible for the supervision of such core areas of financial services as public distribution of securities, insurance, pension funds, and banking are examined.

Zambia’s Stock Exchange and Privatisation Programme Corporate Finance Law in Emerging Markets
2001 0-7734-7560-5
This work illuminates theoretical issues of corporate finance law in emerging markets, focusing on the legal aspects of public distribution of securities in Zambia. The work fills an important gap in the literature pertaining to Africa’s leading stock markets. This work is a classic guide on emerging markets, invaluable to investors, securities regulatory bodies, stockbrokers and dealers, corporate finance lawyers, and financial economists. It identifies both legal and extra-legal constraints on the regulatory framework. It examines activities both on the Lusaka Stock Exchange and under the privatisation programme. It also makes proposals to introduce a regional stock exchange in Southern and Eastern Africa. It presents a critical analysis of the law, striking a balance between black letter law analysis and law in context analysis.
