Within the wide array of works recently devoted to the global financial crisis, this book takes an unusual approach, because it combines different, and often neglected, tools of analysis of the banking and financial system: the use of history for a better understanding of the public policy issues involved in financial regulation; the institutional and regulatory framework that is instrumental to financial stability; and a cross-country comparison of financial crises in three relevant countries: the UK, the US and Italy. The comparison highlights each country's peculiarities in financial structures, institutional arrangements and supervisory styles. This approach is supported by an extensive use -- also, often overlooked - of balance sheet data related to different sectors of each economy. The evidence of the recent crisis shows an unprecedented financial deepening particularly in Anglo-Saxon countries, and raises new questions about links between financial depth, instability and institutional factors. Roselli also suggests how financial regulation could move in an alternative direction.

  • Vol II. Intermediaries and markets
In today's increasingly global and integrated financial climate, there is an amplified need for cooperation between regulators and supervisors across the globe in order to promote economic growth and maintain competitive markets. However, idiosyncrasies remain within local markets, and for those wishing to participate within them, it is necessary to understand the distinctive qualities of each. This book explores the intermediaries of the Italian financial system. It examines the banks, investment services, electronic payment institutions, insurance companies and credit rating agencies functioning in the country, to explore how Italian regulation functions within the context of a wider harmonizing trend. The authors present a study on the current control models of the Italian markets in the wake of changes induced by the privatization of public banks, the increased size and complexity of the intermediaries, the increased level of competition, and the internationalization of the financial innovation. They explain how the country's financial markets are controlled by a combination of bodies, including the State, the authorities and the market participants themselves.

Italian banks and financial intermediaries are subject to extensive regulation which has evolved throughout the country's history. There has also been much change to the country's financial regulation in recent years in response to the globalization of markets and intermediaries. The Italian administrative and regulatory system is often perceived as a major obstacle to economic productivity, and some causes of this ineffectiveness are deeply rooted and date back to the Italian unification and juridical culture. This book provides an overview of the Italian regulation of banking and financial activities, and tracks the evolution of its 'economic Constitution' and market trends. It explores a range of topics within Italian regulation, including the regulation of banking activities, investment services and collective portfolio management. It examines in detail the relationship between intermediaries and customers, public offerings of financial instruments and products, public takeover bids, listed companies, insurance and reinsurance business. Among other current topics the authors discuss the link between investor protection and confidence in the financial markets; and assess the financial markets as a source of financing for companies.

Within an environment made difficult by the continuing economic crisis, the Italian model for crisis management and resolution has helped to avoid many difficulties faced by intermediaries across the globe. However, the Italian model for crisis management will be forced to adapt to the new EU Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive, which introduces a unified regime for such events in all EU countries. This book explores the various methods for crisis management employed in Italian finance. The authors discuss procedures used in the banking and insurance sectors, such as deposit guarantee schemes and alternative dispute resolution systems. They also explore the evolution of the administrative sanctioning systems, and the roles of tax rules and credit rating agencies in Italian finance. This book analyses the evolution of the various crisis management processes, and discusses potential goals and improvements within the context of recent measures suggested by the European Commission.

Italian Banking and Financial Law provides a thorough overview of the banking sector in Italy, offering historical perspectives, insight into current developments and suggestions for future evolution. This book examines the purposes and forms of supervision in Italian regulation, and highlights the means of prevention against money laundering and terrorism financing. It provides insight into both political authorities, such as the Interministerial Committee for Credit and Savings (ICCS) and the Ministry for the Economy and Finance; and also the roles of the independent institutions at work such as the Bank of Italy and Commissione Nazionale per le Societa e la Borsa (CONSOB). The authors reflect on issues such as authority responsibility, institutional structures, regulatory powers and the numerous recent reform laws. Supervision and Supervisory Authorities assesses the Italian supervisory authorities' integration into European and global financial markets, and discusses the devolution of the function of banking supervision in Europe in the light of the 'Banking Union'. The book describes some uncommon features and recent reforms of the Italian legal system, and offers suggestions for institutional development and economic growth.
