This book provides the reader with an overview of the new Financial Services and Markets Act - which will bing the whole financial services industry under the control of a single regulator, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) - and the principal statutory instruments made under it.

The work places the statutory provisions in their practical context, providing informative commentary and a general overview of the new law and its practical consequences. It also summarises the relevant changes in the regulatory regime, and highlights the new powers of the FSA.

* A concise, clear overview of the practical impact of the reforms
* Covers all aspects of financial services
* Written by a specialist team in each of the areas covered
* Includes useful tables of cases, statutes and SIs and European legislation.
