Ensure Basel III compliance with expert analysis specific to Islamic Finance Islamic Capital Markets and Products provides a thorough examination of Islamic capital markets (ICM), with particular attention to the products that they offer and the legal and regulatory infrastructure within which they operate. Since Islamic banks act as asset managers, attention is paid to the regulatory challenges which they face in the light of Basel III, as regards both eligible capital and liquidity risk management. The authors of the chapters are professionals and practitioners, and write from experience. The editors also contributed to some of the chapters. The markets and products covered include Islamic equities, Islamic investment certificates (Sukūk) which are Shari'ah compliant alternatives to conventional bonds, and Islamic Collective Investment Schemes. The coverage of legal and regulatory issues includes an examination of the implications for ICM of securities laws and regulations and of Basel III, as well as collateralisation issues. Shari'ah compliance aspects, in terms both of the selection criteria for Islamic equities and of the 'purification' of impermissible components of income, are also examined in some detail, as are the implications of Basel III for eligible capital in general and for Shari'ah compliant capital instruments in particular. A similar analysis is also made of the implications of the Basel III requirements for liquidity risk management and high quality liquid assets (HQLA), including Shari'ah compliant HQLA. The book concludes with three case studies, two describing the ICM in Malaysia and Bahrain and a third which describes Sukūk issued as Shari'ah compliant capital instruments, followed by brief concluding remarks by the editors.

World Law Group Series Volume 4 Although the economic downturns of 2001 and 2002 have threatened to dampen enthusiasm for employee equity participation in business enterprises, such plans continue to be offered by employers in nearly all major national jurisdictions. The time is ripe, in fact, to clarify and elucidate the legal complexities of extending such plans across borders to employees working in other countries. This is the first book to provide in-depth, country-by-country coverage of the national law issues that must be considered by an employer implementing (or considering the implementation of) a multinational employee equity plan. For each of thirty countries, International Employee Equity Plans presents a detailed survey of applicable law, trends, and customs affecting employee participation. Each chapter is written by practicing employment lawyers in that particular jurisdiction, ensuring that the critical issues, potential pitfalls, and likely changes are incisively dealt with. Among the matters described and analysed for each country are the following: the most advantageous (and disadvantageous) types of plans; relevant securities offering rules; all legal compliance steps; available exemptions and reliefs and the conditions upon which they are offered; the fine line between and¿informingand¿ and and¿advisingand¿; taxation of employee benefits and other tax rules; and the extent to which local courts will recognize foreign law in all pertinent matters. The wealth of guidance and information in this book will help many more organisations to follow the lead of those companies that have already achieved remarkable success in this important area of international business. Legal practitioners, in-house counsel, human resources executives and others involved in implementing employee equity plans have here a detailed and user-friendly handbook covering the most important jurisdictions.

The environmental field and its regulations have evolved significantly since Congress passed the first environmental law in 1970, and the Environmental Law Handbook, published just three years later, has been indispensable to students and professionals ever since. The authors provide clear and accessible explanations, expert legal insight into new and evolving regulations, and reliable compliance and management guidance. The Environmental Law Handbook continues to provide individuals across the country—professionals, professors, and students—with a comprehensive, up-to-date, and easy-to-read look at the major environmental, health, and safety laws affecting U.S. businesses and organizations. Because it is written by the country's leading environmental law firms, it provides the best, most reliable guidance anywhere. Both professional environmental managers and students aspiring to careers in environmental management should keep the Environmental Law Handbook within arm's reach for thoughtful answers to regulatory questions like: How do I ensure compliance with the regulations? How do the latest environmental developments impact my operations? How do we keep our operations efficient and our community safe? This handbook begins with chapters on the fundamentals of environmental law and on issues of enforcement and liability. It then dives headfirst into the major laws, examining their history, scope, and requirements with a chapter devoted to each. The 22nd edition of this well-known handbook has been thoroughly updated, covering major changes to the law and enforcement in the areas of Clean Air, Clean Water, Climate Change, Oil Pollution, and Pollution Prevention. This is an essential reference for environmental students and professionals, and anyone who wants the most up-to-date information available on environmental laws.
