“Today’s markets are faster and more inter-connected and complex than ever, creating new vulnerabilities for public investors. This daunting mandate for regulators has rightly been coupled with greater reach and power. With that, however, can come the temptation to impose specific market structure and desired outcomes without sufficient practical market knowledge and experience. Werner Bijkerk takes a thoughtful and thorough look at the state of market regulation around the world today through the lens of the foundational principles of regulation. The Foundations of Regulation and Werner’s unique global perspective couldn’t have come at a better time for the investing public, industry professionals and those on whom we count to regulate our markets.”
