Banking and Capital Markets Companionby Paul & Montagu, Colin Paul
In the post "credit crunch" era, radical and complex changes have fundamentally reshaped the UK's legal and commercial environment of banks and capital markets. With two of the longest Acts of Parliament ever passed, banking executives, law students, young lawyers, and more experienced professionals alike can be swamped by the level of knowledge now required of them. Banking and Capital Markets Companion covers this entire area of law and offers a fast way to get to grips with these latest developments. This fifth edition is the perfect primer to the changes which have already taken place since 2007, as well as further reforms which are now being implemented in the UK and further afield. The book contains all the latest developments in this area of law including the UK's Companies Act 2006 and the Corporation Tax Act 2009, as well as Basel III, IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) 9, and the provisions relating to the Bank Levy in the draft Finance Bill 2011. Furthermore, all of this is applied in the context of industry standard documentation, such as that issued by the Loan Market Association and International Swaps and Derivatives Association. Banking and Capital Markets Companion is presented in an easy-to-read format - utilizing graphics, flowcharts, bullets, and summaries - which can be studied at a range of depths to suit the readers use. This popular guide has become a secret resource for experienced banking and capital market lawyers.
