Financial Markets in Hong Kong (Second Edition)

We are pleased to announce that the Second Edition of Financial Markets in Hong Kong is available. Since the publication of the first edition in 2006, financial regulation around the world has changed dramatically as a result of the 2008 global financial crisis. As one of the world’s leading financial centres, international regulatory reforms have had a significant impact on the legal and regulatory system in Hong Kong. This new second edition provides a comprehensive and authoritative single-volume guide to the main areas of financial regulation and financial law in Hong Kong.

New to this edition:

  • Fully revised, updated, and expanded to include all new developments in regulation and case law from 2006-2015, as well as the implications of these changes to future market development.
  • Comprehensive coverage of post-crisis reforms and their implementation in Hong Kong, including Basel III, the new regulatory system for OTC derivatives, regulation of credit rating agencies, the deposit insurance and the proposed resolution framework, the incoming regulatory framework for insurance, and major developments in securities regulation, company law and listing rules.
