What is Banking Law?
Banking law encompasses both public and private law related to banking. Finance law relates to any statutes, policies, regulations, or other forms of rules governing financial transactions in which one party raises money through various means of investment. Banking law can play a part in finance law with regard to regulations on lending requirements, types of investments in which banks can engage, and reporting requirements related to these investments.The banking and financial industries are heavily regulated by various statutes. These laws impose reporting requirements for banks and other financial institutions, govern securities and other transactions, and regulate taxes. In addition to affecting banks, banking and finance law often plays a large role in mergers and acquisitions of corporations, stock purchases and investments by both individuals and companies, and tax audits of bank accounts.
