This book outlines the financial services regulatory framework in 16 countries in the Asia Pacific region. Contributors from leading commercial law firms across the region provide a clear explanation of the relevant regulatory bodies and their powers, with consideration of the effects of each jurisdiction's national legislation.
This title is supported by two companion volumes covering Europe and the Middle East. The series describes the principle regulatory authorities that oversee the banking, insurance and securities activities within each country. A highly practical Questions and Answers section highlights the key issues of practical importance: What enforcement powers do the relevant authorities in each country have? What scope is there for foreign entities to conduct banking, insurance, securities activities and
fund marketing activities in or into each country? What is the authorisation and registration process in each jurisidiction? Supporting commentary examines the nature and scope of the current regulation and prospective market developments.
The complete three volume series covers over 60 countries and is an essential reference point for those needing a practical insight into international financial services regulation and the regimes operating within jurisdictions other than their own.

The practical experience of the authors is reflected in their success in setting out complex rules and regulatory structures clearly, without recourse to jargon. The presentation of the book is excellent. The layout is logical and consistent and the text is clearly laid out and jargon free * David Stokes, Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation *
