Abstract


The recent global financial crisis has highlighted the need to re-examine the connections between financial markets, institutions and their regulations. The New Zealand Government had passed the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Act and the Financial Advisers Act into law in 2008.
