Aligning Financial Supervisory Structures with Country Needs: Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The financial sector industry has undergone major changes in recent years. Technological innovation, deregulation, and liberalization are changing the context in which financial supervisors operate. Selecting the right supervisory model is an important strategic decision for a government or financial authority, and should be done in a way that fits with the institutional setting and resource capacity of the particular country. While an increasing number of countries are planning to integrate financial supervisory agencies, others have adopted a partially integrated supervisory structure, and many maintain completely separate agencies.

Aligning Financial Supervisory Structures with Country Needs examines experiences from a variety of supervisors and policymakers from different countries to cross-fertilize ideas on issues of financial supervisory structure and to better understand why and how some countries have initiated structural changes. This timely book also identifies the pros and cons of different financial supervisory models.

Book News Annotation:

Carmichael (former chairman, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority), Fleming (sector manager, finance and private sector development, World Bank Institute), and Llewellyn (economics, Loughborough U., UK) present a synthesis of the proceedings of a December 2003 World Bank Institute conference with the same title. After dealing with the basic issues of the institutional structure of financial regulation and supervision, case material from Australia, South Africa, and Ireland is considered. Also discussed are transitional issues in emerging markets such as El Salvador and Hungary and the effectiveness of regulatory structures in Estonia and the UK.
