Description

Outlining the different types of financial crime and their impact, this book is a user-friendly, up-to-date guide to the regulatory processes, systems and legislation which exist in the UK. Each chapter has a similar structure and covers individual financial crimes including money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, insider dealing, market abuse, bribery and corruption and finally tax avoidance and evasion. Offences are summarized and their extent is evaluated using national and international documents. Detailed assessments of financial institutions and regulatory bodies are made and the achievements of these institutions are analysed. Sentencing and policy options for different financial crimes are included and suggestions are made as to how criminal proceeds might be recovered.


This second edition has been fully updated and includes a section on cybercrime and a new chapter on tax evasion. Case summaries have also been included in those chapters where a criminal justice route is used by the prosecuting authorities.

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, attention continues to focus on the role played by financial crime. The subject is extremely fast-moving, and acknowledging the developing response to tax evasion, publication of the second edition is extremely timely.'


Jonathan Fisher QC, one of the UK's leading barristers in financial crime cases


'This new book should whet the appetite of university students in the UK. It is serious `food for thought.''


Sally Ramage, The Criminal Lawyer
