About this book

This book analyses elements of international finance, comparing the regulation of hedge funds in United States, Europe, the UK, and off-shore jurisdictions in the aftermath of the financial crisis. It critically compares the Dodd- Frank Act in US with the Alternative Investment Funds Managers Directive in Europe. Moreover, it goes further by analyzing the implementation of the AIFM Directive in seven jurisdictions in Europe famous for the incorporation of hedge funds: the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Ireland, Malta, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. The book also analyses the effect of Brexit on the legislation in the UK regarding the application of the directive and the distribution of financial products in Continental Europe, and will be of particular interest to researchers, academics, and students of international finance and financial regulation.

Reviews

The Regulation of Hedge Funds: A Global Perspective represents a timely and well-argued contribution to the scientific literature on this subject. It provides a comprehensive review of recent development in hedge fund regulation and legislation, with an appropriate study of comparative law of hedge funds in several jurisdictions. The book of Ana Maria Fagetan is a very valuable tool for understanding the guidelines of regulation in this area, including protection of investor interests, risk prevention and market freedom.
