Research Handbook on Law and Ethics in Banking and Finance Summary

Research Handbook on Law and Ethics in Banking and Finance by Costanza A. Russo

The global financial crisis highlighted the corrosive effects of unethical behaviour within the banking industry. This edited collection focuses on the role that ethics, as well as the law, can play to prevent such behaviour from reoccurring. It also examines the effectiveness of newly introduced regulations and supervisory actions in fostering ethical conduct with the aim of realigning the interests of financiers with those of society as a whole.

Featuring contributions from authors in academia, central banks, and professional practice, this Research Handbook presents a comprehensive assessment of law, regulation and professional and market standards in the financial industry. The chapters discuss the philosophical foundations of ethics in financial law, the existence of a social licence to operate and how to nudge banks to be more inclusive. They also critically evaluate some of the key topics in the debate, including fiduciary duties and enforcement measures.

The Research Handbook will be of great interest to academics, policy makers and practitioners in financial law and banking law, as well as legal ethics. Those working within the financial industry with an interest in corporate conduct and culture, will find the Handbook to be an invaluable source of information.

Research Handbook on Law and Ethics in Banking and Finance Reviews

'This book is a work of leadership. It offers a brilliant combination of thought and experience about the law and ethics that finance and banking cannot do without. This is about ethics and law embedded in international respect, market culture, business purpose, corporate model and personal integrity. It is about the ends that finance and banking enable us to achieve, about finance earning trust, and about finance serving society, customer, employer and colleague. It is also about insisting that complexity is either understood or reduced. Let the global financial crisis remind us that this is a book on which we must build.'
--Sir Robin Knowles, High Court of England and Wales

This book is path-breaking in addressing one of the key issues of our time, the role of ethics in finance. It provides the reader with a comprehensive and challenging analysis of the main aspects of the current debate. The editors have brought together some of the sharpest minds in the field who offer an in-depth, critical and in places novel analysis of the role of law, self-regulation and standards in guiding and channelling behaviour.
The book is a
tour de force in considering how ethical considerations can inform the financial system. Finance must serve society in a way which is fair, just and ethical. The book is a timely reminder of this function and a call to those involved to exercise diligence in their own self-interest and for the greater good.'
--Sir Ross Cranston FBA, London School of Economics, UK
