The functioning of the financial system is crucial for the world economy. Most persons are well aware of the consequences of a financial crisis, involving bank runs, collapsing markets or money laundering in the financial system. Financial regulation aims to lessen the occurrence of such undesirable events. This course aims to explain how the framework of financial regulation contributes to a well-functioning financial system. After completing the course, students should be able to understand key concepts forming part of the regulation of banking and fund management. For example, the regulation of payments and settlement systems, capital and liquidity controls, supervision of banks and other financial actors will be covered. Furthermore, during the course, students will explore financial regulation from an ethical perspective. Issues such as the regulation of fund management, especially related to ethical and sustainable investment, as well as money laundering and investor protection, will be covered during this course. Finally, the rapid development of the Fin Tech sector is discussed from a regulatory perspective. It is expected that Swedish and international students work together closely during this course, exploring the different subjects covered in the course. The course is part of the courses given by the Department of Business Law.
