The global financial crisis highlighted the corrosive effects of unethical behaviour within the banking industry. This edited collection focuses on the role that ethics, as well as the law, can play in preventing the reoccurrence of such behaviour.

It also examines the effectiveness of newly introduced regulations and supervisory actions in fostering ethical conduct with the aim of realigning the interests of financiers with those of society as a whole.

Featuring contributions from authors in academia, central banks, and professional practice, this Research Handbook presents a comprehensive assessment of law, regulation and standards in the financial industry. The chapters discuss the philosophical foundations of ethics in financial law, the existence of a social licence to operate and how to nudge banks to be more inclusive.

The chapters also critically evaluate some of the key topics in the debate, such as self-regulation, fiduciary duties, enforcement measures and the development of professional and market standards.

The Research Handbook will be of great interest to academics, policy makers and practitioners in financial law and banking law, as well as legal ethics. Those working within the financial industry with an interest in corporate conduct and culture will find this Research Handbook to be an invaluable source of information.
