The first edition of Banking Law was published in 1995. In the 25 years since then, with the advent of electronic, internet, and mobile banking, this area of law in Malaysia has undergone many changes. The banking industry has also faced new obstacles, both domestically and abroad, owing to concerns like compliance, corporate governance, ethics, risk management, financial crimes, and money laundering. With this, we have seen the landscape of the banking industry change drastically, now facing more challenges and becoming more regulated.
This Fifth Edition encompasses the many developments since the last edition was published in 2012, including changes that we have seen to the legislation, regulations, case law, and other legal issues. This information is beneficial to a vast audience, including regulators, supervisors, bankers, professionals, corporations and businesses, and students. In line with the previous publications, this new edition provides crucial insight into the wide areas of banking law but remains in a format easy to understand.
