A Practitioner's Guide to The FSA Regulation of Banking

Since the first edition of A Practitioner's Guide to The FSA Regulation of Banking was published the regulatory environment in which the banking sector operates has been continually evolving. The impact of the Basel 2 accord and EU directives on money laundering, market abuse and markets in financial instruments, together with the conclusion of the FSA Enforcement Review, means that Banks now operate in a completely changed regulatory environment. This title focuses on the impact of these changes on the FSA's risk-based approach to regulation, and assesses the impact they will have on the way banks are managed on a day-to-day basis. It examines, amongst other areas, credit risk, liquidity risk and operational risk, as well as providing detailed commentary on the authorisation and supervision process.
