Abstract

This paper examines the nature of compliance, and its role within the modern financial services organisation. Defining compliance as the management of regulatory risk, the paper analyses what those risks are, and outlines the process by which firms should seek to manage that risk. It concludes by outlining the possible benefits of such an approach.

Abstract

In many ways 1991 was a record year for the self‐regulatory regime set up under the Financial Services Act 1986 (FSA). Not only did the Investment Compensation Scheme pay out a record sum to investors, but the various self‐regulating organisations (SROs) levied fines and awarded costs at unprecedented levels. This paper looks at the disciplining record of two of the four SROs: the Investment Management Regulatory Organisation (IMRO) and the Securities and Futures Authority (SFA). The Life Assurance and Unit Trust Regulatory Organisation (LAUTRO) took on board the ability to levy fines in December 1991 and in many ways is not a good comparison. The disciplinary record of the Financial Intermediaries, Managers and Brokers Regulatory Association (FIMBRA) revolves around the suspension and release from suspension of member firms, and, again provides little scope for constructive comment.

Abstract

This paper considers the obstacles to the regulation of financial conglomerates and the events that have shaped thinking at the regulators, in particular in the banking context. In the light of the Barings debacle in particular it identifies some of the issues that such financial institutions raise for financial systems and the authorities, concluding with the challenges faced by national regulators in an increasingly global environment and what needs to be put in place to meet those challenges.

Abstract

Looks at the 2000 Employment Research Unit Annual Conference held at the University of Cardiff in Wales on 6/7 September 2000. Spotlights the 76 or so presentations within and shows that these are in many, differing, areas across management research from: retail finance; precarious jobs and decisions; methodological lessons from feminism; call centre experience and disability discrimination. These and all points east and west are covered and laid out in a simple, abstract style, including, where applicable, references, endnotes and bibliography in an easy‐to‐follow manner. Summarizes each paper and also gives conclusions where needed, in a comfortable modern format.

Abstract

This study has sought to examine the issue of 'brand image' and its potential impact on sports sponsorship. In particular, brand personality of a sports event and sponsor are considered in relation to sponsor-event fit and image transfer. The study proposes that if there are strong links in terms of brand personality between the Ryder Cup and IBM brands, then the stronger will be the shared 'brand image' and impact of the sponsorship relationship in the minds of consumers. For the purposes of this study it is assumed the sports event of The Ryder Cup is perceived as a 'brand' in its own right.

Abstract

In class action antitrust litigation, the standards for acceptable economic analysis at class certification have continued to evolve. The most recent event in this evolution is the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1435 (2013). The evolution of pre-Comcast law on this topic is presented, the Comcast decision is thoroughly assessed, as are the standards for developing reliable economic analysis. This article explains how economic evidence of both antitrust liability and damages ought to be developed in light of the teachings of Comcast, and how liability evidence can be used by economists to support a finding of common impact for certification purposes. In addition, the article addresses how statistical techniques such as averaging, price-dispersion analysis, and multiple regressions have and should be employed to establish common proof of damages.
