    Stanton, K, 2017, ‘Chapter 10: Financial Services and Regulation’. in: Paula Giliker (eds) Edward Elgar Research Handbook on EU Tort Law. Edward Elgar Publishing, Cheltenham, pp. 273-292


    This chapter considers the impact that EU law has on financial services torts. The basis for such actionability is usually a breach of rules laid down by the Financial Conduct Authority in its Handbook. Many of the current rules in the Handbook have their origin in or have been influenced by EU legislation. The tort produced by this legislation is an important piece of consumer protection law providing protection for persons damaged by the misselling of financial products.
