The book renders a basic overview, in the English language, of current issues and problems in international and Swiss finance market law for both an international and national readership.

The first part is concerned with basic facts and figures and the international framework upon which Swiss finance market law is based (in particular, the IMF, WTO, GATS, BIS, IOSCO etc., as well as EU law), followed by an overview of the events regarding dormant accounts.

The second part elaborates on the SNB, the FBC and the Swiss banking and securities law (including takeover law). Separate chapters are devoted to the securities alliances, the corporation as a finance instrument and investment funds. Finally, the book covers relevant criminal law subjects in the finance field, banking confidentiality and administrative and legal assistance.
