An Introduction to the Law on Financial Investment

Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 2005, the world of financial investment has experienced an unprecedented boom followed by a spectacular bust. Significant changes have been proposed and in some cases implemented in areas such as the structure of regulation, the organisation of markets, supervision of market participants and the protection of consumers. The second edition takes account of these developments, integrating them into an analytical framework that enables the reader to develop a critical overview of the role of general legal rules and specialised systems of regulation in financial investment. The framework focuses on the role of contract, trusts and regulation as the primary legal influences for financial investment. The first part explores the relationship between investment, law and regulation. The second part examines the nature of investments and investors, both professional and private. The third part discusses the central role of corporate finance and corporate governance in linking investors with enterprises that require external capital. The fourth part examines the nature, operation and regulation of markets and the participants that support the functioning of the markets. The objective remains to provide a broadly-based and critical account of the role of law in financial investment. "MacNeil's eloquent and informative distillation of the regulatory fundamentals of investment law gives his book much international relevance...a timely contribution to help readers decipher the seemingly inextricable maze of financial regulation...Practitioners and legal policy advisers will..welcome it. They should find enlightening the book's careful scrutiny of the trust and contractual foundations of investment law and practice."

The rules of land law are numerous, complex, and in some cases baffling to students. The study of land law is also often portrayed as dull. Too frequently those who find success in working out how the law operates in other areas find themselves defeated by land law. Even the great jurist Blackstone, while maintaining that 'there is nothing which so generally strikes the imagination, and engages the affections of mankind, as the right of property', also concluded that the study of land law 'afforded the student less amusement and pleasure in the pursuit' than the study of crime and tort. This book tries to help with that problem. It aims to tell the rules' story: to talk about them in terms of the work they do, in a way that will allow readers to understand and engage with them. And through the example it offers, it aims also to give students the confidence, spur and tools to go on to develop such perspectives for themselves. The book covers the main points of land law found in the syllabuses of law schools in England and Wales. While it is not intended as a comprehensive textbook on the topic, it offers sufficient detail for anyone reading it to gain an overview of the subject, and for those seeking more the footnotes offer plenty of pointers. As well as bringing the coverage up to date, this new edition adds chapters about two especially challenging aspects of the subject: the human rights dimension, and the nature of 'ownership'. As one reader of the first edition commented, 'it shone light where none had shone before, and lit a clear path to understanding'. 'Well written and clear. A great introduction.' Mika Oldham, Jesus College, Cambridge 'An excellent introduction. Many students will no doubt buy it.' Matthew Conaglen, Trinity Hall, Cambridge 'A very clear and interesting way into a complex subject.' David Gregory, Kingston University
