Banking Regulation and Supervision
A Comparative Study of the Uk, USA and Japan
The world-wide trend towards deregulation, internationalization and conglomeration in financial markets may have substantially increased banking efficiency, but it has also highlighted the need for prudent controls to secure consumer protection and financial stability. This important new book compares and assesses the regulatory and supervisory frameworks established in London, New York and Tokyo.
The European single market in financial services, the quest for international harmonization of supervisory practices and the numerous failures of financial institutions during recent years, notably BCCI, have led to a reappraisal of the regulation of financial markets and institutions. Focusing on the banks incorporated in the `Golden Triangle' of London, New York and Tokyo, this important new book compares and assesses the regulatory and supervisory frameworks established to protect investors and preserve overall financial stability. Dr Hall, a leading authority on financial regulation, critically assesses the strengths and weaknesses of regulatory practices in the UK, USA and Japan. He highlights the often conflicting requirements of regulation which seeks, to secure consumer protection and financial stability while maximizing efficiency.
Banking Regulation and Supervision offers a comprehensive coverage of regulatory developments up to the end of 1992, making it essential reading for all members of the financial community, as well as academics, policymakers and students interested in developments in banking and finance.
