Australian Finance Law, 7th Edition provides comprehensive coverage of Australian finance law, including the regulation of the Australian financial system, capital markets, debt finance, taxation and insolvency law. It has been written and compiled by Partners, Consultants and Associates of King & Wood Mallesons.

This well-regarded work combines both legal analysis and its practical application to financing transactions. It is designed for general and specialist advisers, combining both fundamental and more complex legal and practical analysis. It is also an important resource for students of Australian financial and commercial law.

Although it has been written from a primarily Australian context, a number of the chapters have a more international application, either because of the global nature of finance, or because of the similarity in legal concepts between common law jurisdictions.

The seventh edition has been completely revised and updated throughout, reflecting the significant changes in Australian finance law since the global financial crisis. It includes the following:

  • new chapters on the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth), its relevance to traditional security structures such as mortgages and charges, together with the PPSA’s impact on traditional financing transactions, leasing, securitisation and security interests over intellectual property;
  • chapters aimed at introducing the non-specialist to more specialised financing transactions and structures, including swaps, domestic and international capital markets and hybrid securities;
  • new chapters on infrastructure financing and resource financing;
  • given the growth in international trade and the need for financing to support it, a chapter on trade finance; and
  • comprehensive coverage of the impact of insolvency law on financing transactions, including loan to own restructurings and workouts, and the law relating to insolvent trusts and managed investment schemes.

Australian Finance Law, 7th Edition remains an essential addition to the shelves of corporations dealing in finance transactions, specialist banking and finance lawyers and barristers, and an ideal text for finance law, accounting and finance students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
