The first publication to provide analysis of the legal and economic aspects of European Banking Union
Offers analysis and discussion of key issues on a theoretical and practical level, including SSM and SRM
Written by a team of leading contributors who are scholars and practitioners in the financial sector
This comprehensive and topical work examines the impact of European Banking Union in the context of the European Central Bank taking over supervision of the 130 European banks in 2014. The work addresses the effect on the daily supervision of large banks in Europe and also analyses the position of bank creditors and shareholders.
The thematic approach covers the Single Rulebook and CRD IV, the Single Supervisory System (SSM), and the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) from a legal and economic perspective. The book also compares the US to Europe and assesses whether anything can be learnt from US experience.
Key issues such as judicial protection of supervised credit institutions, implications for financial market governance, and risk management and compliance, are examined alongside case-studies and analysis.
Readership: The primary market for this work would include scholars and practitioners in the field of banking law, regulatory law, insolvency law and European law. There would also be a secondary market amongst in-house lawyers and compliance officers at banks in Europe, financial supervisors, and policy makers in Member states.
