The international financial crisis which began in August 2007 brought into sharp focus the regulation of the financial services industry. However, even before then, the quest to control money-laundering, Executive excesses, terrorist financing and financial crime generally, had resulted in the upsurge of a new regulatory environment worldwide.

In Risky Business, the Contributors, bringing both expertise and experience, present different perspectives on the new regulatory practices and offer guidance on the role of governance in the scheme of regulatory reform. Divided into two parts: International Perspectives and Jamaican Perspectives, the book firstly focuses on the wider global regulatory context, while the second part examines the Jamaican situation and the initiatives taken there primarily through the passage and implementation of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

While of particular interest to scholars and practitioners of financial regulation, company and commercial law, and comparative law, the easy and accessible presentations of the contributions in Risky Business will also enlighten the general reader interested in the financial services industry anywhere in the world.
