1. Elgar Financial Law and Practice series

    Series editor: Roger McCormick, CCP Research Foundation C.I.C., UK

    The Elgar Financial Law and Practice series is a library of works by leading practitioners and scholars covering discrete areas of law in the field of banking and finance. Each title will be both analytical and descriptive in approach, highlighting and unpicking the legal issues that are most critical and relevant to practice. Designed to be detailed, focused reference works, the books in this series should aim to offer an authoritative statement on the law and practice in key topics within the field, from Financial Collateral to Private Equity, from Secured Transactions to Financial Crime, and from Financial Derivatives and Hedge Funds to Bank Resolution and Bank Capital. Readership: The target readership for the series is primarily law firms and in-house counsel at financial institutions, but also regulators and academics. The primary jurisdictional focus is likely to be the UK, but as far as possible books in the series should be designed to appeal to audiences in Europe and, where appropriate, in the US and Asia as well.

  3. The Governance of Credit Rating Agencies

    The Governance of Credit Rating Agencies

    Andrea Miglionico
    The global crisis revealed that credit rating agencies (CRAs) are capable of bringing about potential distortions in the financial sector, thereby resulting in a reduction in market confidence which, in turn, influences negotiations and expectations. CRAs need to be held accountable for lack of transparency and inaccurate ratings, however the existing regulatory framework does not secure adequate investor protection. This book provides a new and important contribution to research in the area, at a crucial time in the debate around financial regulation and investment regimes. Learn More
