This comprehensive Research Handbook provides an in-depth analysis of the different financial law approaches, legal systems and trends throughout Asia. Considering how reforms following the crises have been critical for the development and growth of the region, this insightful book explores a broad range of post-crisis financial regulatory issues. It also examines how inconsistent and divergent approaches to financial market regulation are curtailing the region’s potential.

By focusing on the legal frameworks and regulatory models at a national level, this innovative Research Handbook addresses opportunities and challenges for financial markets and convergence in the region. Key topics include the different legal and regulatory approaches to common issues, such as banking regulation and resolution, FinTech, insolvency frameworks and ASEAN financial market integration. Specific regulatory approaches are discussed in relation to areas such as Renminbi internationalization, Islamic banking and finance, shadow banking, crowdfunding, venture capital, derivatives, bond and securities markets. The book concludes with an analysis of the impact of FinTech on regulatory convergence in Asia.

The Research Handbook on Asian Financial Law will be of great value to law students, academics and policymakers working across a diverse range of fields including financial regulation, Asian studies, banking resolution and insolvency.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is an excellent Research Handbook on Asian financial law and regulation. It brings together 32 of the leading experts in the area examining the subject across 27 substantial and informed chapters. The coverage is extensive. The treatment is sharp and professional. The analysis is deep and balanced. This is a timely and necessary piece of work, especially following the recent crises and instability in Asian and global financial markets and the future potential of the region. This sets a new standard of scholarship in the area and will immediately become the new reference text on this fascinating subject.'
– George Walker, Queen Mary University of London, UK

‘This volume brings together leading experts in Asia-Pacific financial law and regulation, offering distinguishing perspectives from literature focused on the US/EU/UK. Asian financial law and regulation deserves its own platform and this volume is timely and highly valuable to researchers and practitioners alike.’
– Iris H-Y Chiu, University College London, UK

‘This Research Handbook brings together the region’s pre-eminent financial law scholars to analyse the major issues confronting East Asia. It is filled with illuminating and incisive insights across a broad and comprehensive canvas.
