Research handbook on shadow banking, legal and regulatory aspects, edited by Iris H.-Y. Chiu, Iain MacNeil

In the Research Handbook on Shadow Banking an international cast of experts discusses shadow banking activities, the purposes they serve, the risks they pose to the financial system, and the wider implications for regulators and the regulatory perimeter. Contributors offer high-level and theoretical perspectives on shadow banking and regulatory risks as well as more detailed explorations of specific markets in shadow banking. With perspectives from the United Kingdom, the European Union, the United States, China and Singapore, this Research Handbook discusses a range of wholesale sector shadow banking activities including the rehypothecation of assets, securitization and derivatives as well as the implications of hedge fund activities for systemic risk. Further topics of discussion include a range of shadow banking activities led by financial and technological innovation, such as online equity and debt crowdfunding, the rise of exchange traded funds, and the emergence of crypto-currencies and distributed ledger technology. Interdisciplinary, broad and comprehensive in topic, this Research Handbook will prove to be a one-stop resource for legal academics and practitioners as well as for research students and those participating in the financial industry and trade associations
