Market Abuse Regulation is a wide-ranging and insightful analysis of the market abuse regime and the applications of the regulations in the UK and European Union. It provides detailed discussion of the implementation and interpretation of the regulation, the conduct of investigations, the defences and appeals available against a finding of market abuse, and overlapping United States regulation.
The new edition explains and evaluates the changes introduced by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive , the Market Abuse Directive, the Market Abuse Regulation, and the implementation of the Regulation on Wholesale Market Integrity and Transparency, which have resulted in dramatic expansion of the coverage of EU market abuse regulation. It addresses the regulation of additional financial instruments, the expansion to include new markets and trading facilities, and changes to the
coverage of commodity derivatives and physical commodities. It discusses the dramatic changes to the format of regulation as a result of the restructuring of UK regulators; as well as the addition of new EU supervisory bodies with revised powers over national regulation within the EU. Beyond the EU, it
discusses international protocols and treaties which have also added to the regulatory structure.

Review from previous edition An impressive and useful handbook to the law and practice of market abuse. Chapters 1 and 2 set the scene and draw together in an organized form the background points that are difficult to find anywhere else. What I like about the rest of the book is the clear and careful structure that makes the statutory code more accessible and understandable and creates a well-ordered and intelligible framework. * Stephen Oliver QC, President of the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal *
Overall, this book is highly recommended reading for all those with an interest in the market abuse regime of one of the financial centres of the world...I personally look forward very much to reading also the next edition. * Markus Heidinger, Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation *
