Toward a European Regulatory Investor Protection Law

  • Antonio Marcacci
Chapter

Abstract

The book opens by drawing up the boundaries of its normative scope. This chapter starts by briefly explaining the key differences of the two traditional patterns of financial systems and the gradual shift—from bank based toward market based—which has been occurring in Europe over the last decades. It, then, gives an account of the European Regulatory Private Law (ERPL) theory and embeds the EU law of investor protection into the margins of such theory. The overall message is the claim that the EU law of investor protection is actually a “European Regulatory Investor Protection Law”.
