Consumer Financial Dispute Resolution in a Comparative Context

Consumer Financial Dispute Resolution in a Comparative Context

Author: Shahla F. (The University of Hong Kong) Ali Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/09/2020

Nearly all major global financial centres have developed systems of consumer financial dispute resolution. Such systems aim to assist parties to resolve a growing number of monetary disputes with financial institutions. How governments and self-regulatory organizations design and administer financial dispute resolution mechanisms in the context of increasingly turbulent financial markets is a new area for research and practice. Consumer Financial Dispute Resolution in a Comparative Context presents comparative research about the development and design of these mechanisms in East Asia, North America and Europe. Using a comparative methodology and drawing on empirical findings from a multi-jurisdictional survey, Shahla F. Ali examines the emergence of global principles that influence the design of financial dispute resolution models, considers the structural variations between the ombuds and arbitration systems, and offers practical proposals for reform.

This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The thirteenth edition has been thoroughly updated. It newly features most prominently a reordering of Part Three and a reworking of the rapidly changing subject of general and specific personal jurisdiction. Finally, it brings a proven Stories approach to the presentation of the major cases' backgrounds.
