The Law of Institutional Investment Management fills a gap for a work that describes the custom and practice of the institutional investment management industry with reference to both English law and to the European regulatory framework. The governing theme of the work is the structure of the institutional investement process. The work seeks to define the legal risks that an institutional investor who invests in the financial markets through a professional investment manager must be aware of, both in relation to the investment manager and in relation to the financial markets. The analysis addresses the key investment strategies and management styles, the investment manager's responsibility for delivering investment returns through asset allocation and asset selection decisions, the execution of those decisions, and the management of conflicts. The discussion includes an in-depth analysis of the modi operandi of various trading venues, the structure and legal aspects of key financial market transactions (including on-exchange and OTC traded derivatives, and securities lending and repo transactions), and the legal aspects of cash and securities movements in connection with settlement and collateralisation of those financial market transactions.
