Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law.

Notwithstanding the number of chapters in various publications in The Law Reviews series on topics involving public-private partnerships (PPPs) and private finance initiatives (in areas such as projects and construction, real estate, mergers, transfers of concessionaires’ corporate control, special purpose vehicles and government procurement), we identified the need for a deeper understanding of the specific issues related to this topic in different countries.

This book serves two purposes, one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, The International Capital Markets Review addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a comparative law reference source. Globalisation and technological change mean that the transactional practice of a capital markets lawyer, wherever based, no longer enjoys the luxury, if ever it did, of focusing solely at home within the confines of a single jurisdiction. Globalisation means that fewer and fewer opportunities or challenges are truly local, and technology more and more permits a practitioner to tackle international issues.

Some in the industry have already started to worry that by reducing capital expenditures the seeds of a future price shock are being sown.
