The BCCI affair was the world's greatest financial fraud, triggering a revolution in the domestic and international legal regimes governing foreign banks. Foreign Bank Regulation After BCCI is the first book to examine this legal revolution. Written by Raj Bhala, former attorney of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York who was assigned to investigate BCCI and handle civil enforcement actions against the bank, the book treats not only the new U.S. laws and regulations governing foreign banks, but also the new international standards applicable to cross-border banking institutions.
This book is essential reading for scholars and students in the fields of international banking and financial law, international trade law, and banking and financial institution regulation. Those interested in substantive administrative law will find that the book documents an intriguing case study of legislative and regulatory responses to a perceived financial market crisis.
Foreign Bank Regulation After BCCI is written in a clear style that is accessible to the non-lawyer and appropriate for scholars and students in business and graduate schools who are interested in international finance.
