Your authoritative, country-specific guide to bank confidentiality
Published in conjunction with the International Bar Association, the new fully revised fourth edition of Neate: Bank Confidentiality provides a clear picture of the laws relating to bank confidentiality in 31 countries throughout the world.
Each chapter is contributed by a local industry expert and offers an authoritative, country-specific overview of the basic rules of bank confidentiality or secrecy - the nature, extent and source of those rules - and examines:
- The remedies available for breach of those rules
- Exceptions which allow disclosure
- The extent to which conflicts of interest arise
- Impact of extra-territorial requests for information
These issues are then analysed in the light of statutory and non-statutory frameworks of civil and criminal law in each jurisdiction.
