Market Abuse Enforcement: Practice and Procedure
This new title is concerned with the interplay between the Financial Services Authority‘s (‘FSA’) statutory powers to impose administrative law sanctions on persons that have engaged in abuse in the financial markets and the statutory system of Tribunal accountability provided by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (‘the Act’).
It provides a thorough analysis and assessment of both the law of market abuse and the operation of the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal (‘FSMT’) and the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery) (‘UT’) following the implementation of the Tribunal, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 in April 2010 when as part of an improved and unified system of statutory Tribunals the functions of the FSMT were transferred to the UT. This book captures the resulting changes to the Tribunal‘s governance and rules of procedure. It sets out to question whether the Tribunal has effectively held the FSA‘s enforcement decision making to account and whether its individual case decision making has provided a wider contribution to the law on market abuse.
