Research Handbook on Shadow Banking

Legal and Regulatory Aspects

Research Handbooks in Financial Law series

Edited by Iris H.-Y. Chiu, Professor of Corporate Law and Financial Regulation, University College London and Iain G. MacNeil, Alexander Stone Professor of Commercial Law, University of Glasgow, UK

Research Handbook on Shadow Banking brings together a range of international experts to discuss shadow banking activities, the purposes they serve, the risks they pose to the financial system and implications for regulators and the regulatory perimeter. Including discussions specific to the UK, European Union, US, China and Singapore, this book offers high level and theoretical perspectives on shadow banking and regulatory risks, as well as more detailed explorations of specific markets in shadow banking.

‘This book is edited by two of the most eminent scholars in financial law. Together with a list of authoritative contributors in their respective fields, this is to date the most definitive book on the subject matter from regulatory perspectives. It is more than a research handbook, it is the "go-to" book on this subject matter with great insights. This research handbook is an outstanding scholarly book for financial law academics and postgraduate research students. If you are a legal practitioner in financial law, the comprehensiveness and profound debates in this single collection of articles about shadow banking makes it a must read!’
– Angus Young, Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation

‘The Research Handbook brings a heavyweight group of contributors to the disparate group of financial activities called “shadow banking”. Under the distinguished editorship of Professors Chiu and MacNeil, it provides an analysis of issues relating to financial regulation, the law and policy-making which is both contemporary and of the highest quality.’
– The Hon. Sir William Blair, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

‘In the ten years since the financial crisis, we have seen a broad spectrum of the functions traditionally performed by banks being taken up by other players. This is one of the most fascinating fields of economics and regulation in the world of financial intermediaries. The book covers the entire spectrum of this new field, both wholesale‎ as well as retail: a truly valuable contribution to this important topic.’
– Katja Langenbucher, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Germany
