Chapter 16: Regulating collective retail investment funds in the United Kingdom with the objective of investor protection, and some implications
The chapter provides a comprehensive analysis of pan-European investment law. By providing an overview of European Union sources of law and regulatory objectives, he offers a thorough introduction to a large and growing market that rivals the United States in global economic importance. It explores the unique features of the two key pillars of European fund governance: UCITS (broadly corresponding to public funds like mutual funds in the United States) and Alternative Investment Funds (broadly corresponding to private US funds, such as hedge or private equity funds). It then offers an analysis of the future trajectory of European investment fund law.
